This section contains the information you need to install the DB2 Client Application Enabler on OS/2 workstations.
To install the DB2 Client Application Enabler for OS/2:
The IBM DB2 for OS/2 Version 5 Installation window opens.
To select the product that you want to install on your system, click on the Continue push button. The Update CONFIG.SYS File window opens.
For the Install - Directories window, complete the entries as follows:
You have the option of installing the Client Configuration Assistant component. The Client Configuration Assistant makes it easy for you to configure and administer connections to databases and to bind applications and utilities to a database. If the Client Configuration Assistant is not installed, you will need to manually configure connections to DB2 servers. Refer to "Managing Connections to Databases Using the Client Configuration Assistant" for a complete description of the Client Configuration Assistant's features.
|Note:||If a DB2 Version 5 product is already installed on the workstation, you must install on the same drive and directory.|
A progress window appears until the installation is complete. You can click on the Stop push button at any time to end the installation.
|Note:||If you want to run Windows 3.1 applications on your OS/2 client, you must also install the DB2 Client Application Enabler for Windows 3.1 component on your system. You should install this client component in the same directory as DB2 Client Application Enabler for OS/2. Having both DB2 Client Application Enablers in the same directory merges the DB2 directories and allows the CCA to be used to configure the access to remote DB2 databases for both OS/2 and Windows 3.x applications.|
||To configure your client to access remote servers, go to Chapter 14. "Configuring Client-to-Server Communications Using the CCA".|
