Chapter 1. DB2 clients overviewDB2 clientsThere are three types of DB2 clients:v Run-Time Clientv Administration Clientv Application Development ClientDB2 clients can connect to DB2 servers two releases later or one release earlierthan the client’s release level, as well as to servers at the same release level.This means that a DB2 Version 6 client can connect to DB2 servers at versions5, 6, 7, and 8.A database cannot be created on a DB2 client. You must access databases thatreside on a DB2 server.Related concepts:v “DB2 Run-Time Client” on page 3v “DB2 Administration Client” on page 4v “DB2 Application Development Client” on page 4Related tasks:v “Installing a DB2 client on Windows operating systems” on page 17v “Installing DB2 clients on UNIX” on page 18DB2 Run-Time ClientThe DB2 Run-Time Client is a light-weight client that provides thefunctionality required for an application to access DB2 Universal Database servers and DB2 Connect servers. Functionality includes communicationprotocol support and support for application interfaces such as JDBC, SQLj,ODBC, CLI, and OLE DB. As a result of the removal of most of the previousRun-Time Client GUI facilities, the Version 8 Run-Time Client now hasdiminished disk requirements.Notes:1. The Configuration Assistant is not packaged with the Windows Run-TimeClient. The only available GUI is the CLI/ODBC administration GUI. Copyright IBM Corp. 1993 - 20023

2. With the DB2 Run-Time Client, you must bind the CLI packages from amachine with the proper bind files before you can make use of it for CLIapplications.DB2 Run-Time Clients are available for the following platforms: AIX, HP-UX,Linux, the Solaris Operating Environment, and Windows operating systems.Related concepts:v “DB2 clients” on page 3v “DB2 Administration Client” on page 4v “DB2 Application Development Client” on page 4Related tasks:v “Installing a DB2 client on Windows operating systems” on page 17v “Installing DB2 clients on UNIX” on page 18DB2 Administration ClientA DB2 Administration Client provides the ability for workstations from avariety of platforms to access and administer DB2 databases. The DB2Administration Client has all the features of the DB2 Run-Time Client andalso includes all the DB2 administration tools and support for Thin Clients.DB2 Administration Clients are available for the following platforms: AIX,HP-UX, Linux, the Solaris Operating Environment, and Windows operatingsystems.Related concepts:v “DB2 clients” on page 3v “DB2 Run-Time Client” on page 3v “DB2 Application Development Client” on page 4Related tasks:v “Installing a DB2 client on Windows operating systems” on page 17v “Installing DB2 clients on UNIX” on page 18DB2 Application Development ClientThe DB2 Application Development Client is a collection of graphical andnon-graphical tools and components for developing character-based,multimedia, and object-oriented applications. Special features include theDevelopment Center and sample applications for all supported programming4Quick Beginnings for DB2 Clients

languages. The Application Development Client also includes the tools andcomponents provided as part of the DB2 Administration Client product.DB2 Application Development clients are available for the followingplatforms: AIX, HP-UX, Linux, the Solaris Operating Environment, andWindows operating systems.Related concepts:v “DB2 clients” on page 3v “DB2 Run-Time Client” on page 3v “DB2 Administration Client” on page 4Related tasks:v “Installing a DB2 client on Windows operating systems” on page 17v “Installing DB2 clients on UNIX” on page 18Chapter 1.

Chapter 2. DB2 client requirementsMemory requirements for DB2 clientsThe following list outlines the recommended minimum memory requirementsfor the different types of DB2 clients:v The amount of memory required for the DB2 Run-Time client depends onthe operating system and the database applications that you are running. Inmost cases, it should be sufficient to use the minimum memoryrequirements of the operating system as the minimum requirement forrunning the DB2 Run-Time client.v To run graphical tools on an Administration or Application Developmentclient, you will require an additional amount of 64 MB of RAM. Forexample, to run graphical tools on an Administration Client machinerunning Windows 2000 Professional, you would need a minimum of 64 MBof RAM for the operating system plus an additional amount of 64 MB ofRAM for the tools.Note: Performance may be affected if less than the recommended minimummemory requirements are used.Related concepts:v “DB2 clients” on page 3Related tasks:v “Installing a DB2 client on Windows operating systems” on page 17v “Installing DB2 clients on UNIX” on page 18Disk requirements for DB2 clientsThe actual fixed disk requirements of your installation may vary dependingon your file system and the client components you install. Ensure that youhave included a disk space allowance for your application development toolsand communication products.The following tables provide minimum disk space requirements for DB2clients on Windows and UNIX–based operating systems. When you install aDB2 client using the DB2 Setup wizard, size estimates are dynamicallyprovided by the installation program based on installation type andcomponent selection.

Chapter 3. Installing a DB2 clientInstalling a DB2 client on Windows operating systemsThis task describes how to install a DB2 client on a Windows operatingsystem.Prerequisites:Before you install your DB2 client:v Ensure that your system meets all of the memory, disk space, andinstallation requirements.v Ensure that you have a user account to perform the installation:Windows 98, Windows MEAny valid Windows 98 user account.Windows Terminal Server, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP,and Windows .NETA user account that belongs to a group with more authority thanthe Guests group, such as the Users group.Note: To perform an installation on Windows 2000 servers andWindows .NET as part of the Users group, the registrypermissions have to be modified to allow Users write accessto the HKEY LOCAL MACHINE\Software registry branch. In thedefault Windows 2000 and Windows .NET environment,members of the Users group only have read access to theHKEY LOCAL MACHINE\Software registry branch.Procedure:To install a DB2 client:1. Log on to the system with the user account that you want to use toperform the installation.2. Shut down any other programs so that the DB2 Setup wizard can updatefiles as required.3. Insert the appropriate CD-ROM into the drive. The auto-run featureautomatically starts the DB2 Setup wizard. The DB2 Setup wizard willdetermine the system language, and launch the setup program for that Copyright IBM Corp. 1993 - 200217

language. You can run the DB2 Setup wizard in a language other than thedefault system language by manually invoking the DB2 Setup wizard andspecifying a language code.4. Choose Install Products once the DB2 Launchpad opens.5. Proceed by following the DB2 Setup wizard’s prompts. Online help isavailable to guide you through the remaining steps.After installing your DB2 client, you should configure it to access a remoteDB2 server.Note: In Version 8, DB2 only supports TCP/IP for remotely administering adatabase.Related tasks:v “Configuring a client to server connection using the Configuration Assistant(CA)” in the Quick Beginnings for DB2 Serversv “Configuring remote access to a server database” in the Installation andConfiguration Supplementv “Starting the DB2 Setup wizard for a DB2 server installation (Windows)” inthe Quick Beginnings for DB2 ServersRelated reference:v “Language identifiers (for running the DB2 Setup wizard in anotherlanguage)” in the Quick Beginnings for DB2 ServersInstalling DB2 clients on UNIXThis task provides steps for installing a DB2 client on UNIX.Prerequisites:Before you begin installing a DB2 client on UNIX:v Ensure that your system meets all of the memory, hardware, and softwarerequirements to install your DB2 product.v Installing a DB2 client in the Solaris Operating Environment or on HP-UXrequires that you update your kernel configuration parameters and restartyour system.Procedure:After updating your kernel configuration parameters and rebooting yoursystem (required for Solaris and HP-UX), you can install your DB2 client.18Quick Beginnings for DB2 Clients
