This course is designed for DB2 database and system administrators responsible for the implementation and management of connectivity between applications running on distributed platforms, like Microsoft Windows, Linux and UNIX based systems, and DB2 for z/OS database servers. Through lectures and lab exercises, you will learn how to configure a DB2 for z/OS subsystem as a Distributed Relational Database Architecture (DRDA) server. You will learn about alternative methods to implement application connectivity, including using IBM data server drivers, a DB2 data server client or a DB2 Connect server.
The self-paced format gives you the opportunity to complete the course at your convenience, at any location, and at your own pace. The course is available 24 hours a day. Once you have accessed the course, instructor help is available via the course forum Monday through Friday; questions will be responded to within 24 hours.
This intermediate course is for database administrators, system administrators, systems engineers or system implementers, who are responsible for Distributed Database configuration and implementation between a Linux, UNIX and Windows environment and a DB2 for z/OS server.
