The Administration Server enables you to administer DB2 server systems from a local or remote client, using the Control Center. You must have a running Administration Server if you want to use the Client Configuration Assistant or the Control Center. For example, you can start or stop DB2, or schedule jobs to be run at the server from a local or remote system.
The Administration Server is also used to support client configuration using the Client Configuration Assistant, and system reporting using the Control Center. You can create only one Administration Server on a machine.
This section shows you how to manually create an Administration Server. It also describes how to start, stop, and remove an Administration Server, set up an Administration Server to use the CCA and the Control Center, and set an Administration Server's user account.
