How can I see DB2 on Linux, Windows & Solaris fromone Controld Center?

Hello all,

I have windows Vista and DB2 on my laptop. In addition, I installed VMware with multiple OS (linux, Windows server 2003, Solaris and each have an instance of DB2). I want to be able to all instances of DB2 from the DB2 control center on my Host Vista environment.

How can I do this? I remember vaguely that all I need to do is catalog those instances on the Vista, right? Problem I fear is that I don't know how to get the correct IP address for the VM machines (3) that I have defined on my laptop.

Coulds someone walk me through what I need to do to accomplish my objective of seeing all instances from one control center

when you are inside your vm you need to check what is the ip address of the host
each os has a different command that lets you see it, but once you figure out the ip address
you just catalog the db2 instances on your local control center in the windows vista just as you said

which virtual machine software do you use? i'm sure that you can tell the vm software which ip to allocate to each virtual machine it runs
