Hi cuttie,

DB2 defers to the underlying operating system for user validation.  To create a DB2 user, create a user on the server where DB2 is running.

You can always create additional schemas.  The DBA (or anyone with sufficient privilege) would create one with the CREATE SCHEMA statement.

In most releases of DB2, I believe that a user's default schema is the user's name.


Good Luck,
Kent

Depends on the server.

If it's Windows, start with My Computer / Manage.

If it's linux or unix, the adduser (or useradd) command will create a new user.  You can specify the password when you create the user or use the passwd command to change/set it.

If it's an OS/2 or AS/400 server, we'll have to get someone else to chime in as I'm not a mainframe type.
