Hi mmartha,

Try this link:  http://www.sh-linux.org/rpm-index-2003/sh3/db2-2.4.14-10.2.sh3.html



Good Luck,
Kent

Thanks Kdo, but that rpm is for libdb.so.3 (Berkeley DataBase) and I need the libdb2.so (or maybe libdb2.so.1) file (library for access to a DB2 server).

Also, I need it for a SuSE 9.1 Pro :(

thanks.

:o Sooooooooooooorrry!!

I've just find out that the "file" actually was a link to libdb.so.3 *sighs ashamed*

You see, I already have a SuSE 8 box running perfectly and accessing the DB2. I have SuSE 9.1 in this other box alro running perfectly, but it doesn't have a libdb2.so file (as in the suse 8), so I checked the suse 8 and libdb2.so is a ln -s to libdb.so.3.

Now I created the link to libdb.so.3 but still doesn't work. WHat should I do now? ldconfig?

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

>> but still doesn't work.

That covers a lot of ground.  What's failing?

'llo!

OK, What I was trying to do is connect Domino to a DB2 with unixODBC, using iSeries Client Access ODBC drivers. Domino tries to access db2 _directly_ looking for libdb2.so in the installation directory, it must be the db2 driver (usually named libdb2.so too, but also a link to the libdb.so.3 as I could notice). Now, after I noticed it was a link, I tried to check the connection with IBM's dctest program unsuccesfully. The environmental variables weren't exported (ODBCINI, PATH), I also did ldconfig with all the library directories in my system haha :P

I already had the libodbc.so configured for a SQL Server connection. After this, the DSN for the DB2 connection was sucesfully runned with the ODBC connection of dctest (not the db2 connection).

And... that's my Haloween story. haha :P

Sorry for the trouble.

I'll request for the question to be closed by the Administrators if you have no objection. :S

Advice please. :)

Sorry for stepping away -- it's been a heck of a day...


Glad that you got up and running.  It's amazing how many DB2 problems wind up being some place other than where the problem suggests.
