Hi experts,
I'm a DB2 newbie,
I need good guide/manual step by step to Install, configure and administer database DB2 on Linux, UNIX, and Windows platform

I have noticed that on this IBM link there is a good documentation:
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27024478

but I did not want to read the entire DB2 official documentation but I'd to read something faster step by step.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Ralph,

The installation is just as easy as any other Windows or linux application is.  Since you're obviously very new at this, try performing a basic installation, then figuring out how you might want to do it differently and try again.

1.  Download DB2.
2.  Unzip (untar/unpack/etc.) the file.
3.  Run setup.
4.  Select the options that you want in the install window(s).

It really is that easy.  The hard part is knowing enough about DB2 to know what you want to do with it.  :)


Good Luck,
Kent

I need to download and install the DB2 server on windows xp and windows 7.

I found this link:
http://www-01.ibm.com/software/data/db2/linux-unix-windows/downloads.html

but it seems that I can use it for up to 90 days.

Have you any idea where I can download a free version of the DB2 server for windows?

Kent,
thanks for this link but I'd like to Know the difference between Express-C and Enterprise server edition versions.

I'd like to install Enterprise Server Edition version but I don't know if it is same to Express-C version to learn the administration feature.

Hi Ralph,

The two versions are exactly alike, except for some limitations placed on Express-C.  Those limitations include max memory, maximum number of processor, maximum number of tasks, etc.  DB2 puts Express-C out there so people will download it, experiment with it, and develop to it, and when their needs grow move to the fully licensed (Enterprise) version.

As far as administration, development, SQL, etc.  They are exactly the same.  (And Express-C is free where Enterprise requires a paid-for license.)  Everything that you learn from Express-C is portable directly to the Enterprise version.
