    How to get ODBC Driver for DB2 for SIlkTest

    we have searched high & low in trying to find the driver for DB2 so that we can use the DBTester to directly query the DB2 database.
    Unfortunately, we cannot find the DB2 ODBC driver in either microsoft.com or ibm.com.
    To whomever is actively using DB2 with SilkTest and has this driver, I would greatly appreciate if you could attach it here so that we can download it.
    HELP!!!
    P.S. I have searched this forum already, but found only a reference to check out microsoft. But we cannot find it in the ODBC downloads there at all.

    Our systems: Win2K, win98, SIlk5.5, DB2 (udb version)

    Hi janek,
    we use DB2-Connect from IBM.This is a ODBC Driver for DB2. This works fine and it's very fast.
    best regards ANDALL

    Thanks for the info....
    does this mean that we need to get the DB2-Connect package in order to get the ODBC Driver for DB2 on our Windows??? or is there another solution?

    I'm going to assume that you actually have the DB2 UDB CD for your installation, and that it's for Windows ...

    You need to install the Administration Client "piece" on your client machines -- run the DB2 installer, select "Administration Client" from the list of components.

    Once you've done that, go to the Start Menu and run the DB2 "Client Configuration Assistant". This little gizmo will walk you thru configuring the ODBC drivers. You'll need to know things about your server installation -- the comm mechanism (TCP/IP, pipes ...), host name, port number, etc.

    A word of warning -- you can do this thru the ODBC Administrator on your WinX box, but it's much more painful. The "Assistant" is a better approach.

    When you're done, you'll see the ODBC DSNs in your ODBC Administrator -- and you can use those names for the DB_* routines.
