No, I'm just wondering where to get that db2 client. Any tips for that? I don't even know is there any free db2 clients that I can use?

I configured ODBC driver for DB2 database in Administaror tools but when I test the connection I get error message "SQL1027N The node directory cannot be found". Any tips to correct this error?

sorry, but I don't know more than that about DB2.
you should find the information in the db2 installation docs, though...
the error message is not really clear:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/db2luw/v9r5/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.db2.luw.messages.sql.doc/doc/msql01027n.html

maybe this:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/db2luw/v8/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.db2.udb.doc/core/r0001936.htm
(see also the other CATALOG xxx NODE commands in the tree) ...

Now I get connected to database! I had to set up the server name when I setup ODBC. First time I didn't do that and it was impossible to add later. I removed ODCB and set up it again, and now everything works fine. Thank you!
