I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi Dr.

By default, DB2 defers to OS validation for user access.  You are your Windows signon name.  Control of DB2 objects can by user or group.  The DB2 Knowledge Center pages have a better description than I can write in a paragraph.

Good Luck!
