hi
that depends on 2 questions
where does your db2 reside ?
which type of replication you need

if your db2 resides on windows / linux / windows you can define it as a linked server in yous sql server and you can use what ever method you are familiar with in your sql server database
the db2 client comes with an odbc driver so all you need to do is install a db2 run time client (which you can download for free from the ibm web site) on your sql server machine.
i'm not that familiar with sql server but i guess you can use ssis or distributed transaction in order to implement replication

if your db2 is on as400 or a mainframe you will need a middlewear which can be ibm's db2 connect or microsoft's HIS in order to be able to access the host machine

was that clear or do you need furthor details ?

Actually, if the your DB2 is on AS/400, then you can use a linked server in SQL Server, too.

I haven't done this in a few years, but you can create a DTS package to automatically send data to and from your disparate data sources.
