Post subject: DB2 Client Connection Problems

Hi,

I just installed Db2 Admin client 8.2 . Now I am trying to create a connection in the universe. It gives me some DB2CLI.dll file error. What I am doing is I am selecting IBM DB2 client in the universe but then getting the error that this DB2CLI.dll file is missing. Can somebody help in configuring DB2 client and then configuring the connection in the designer.

Thanks

We're using this combination successfully.

Two possible problems:
. is the client configured correctly? ... go to START >> PROGRAMS >> IBM DB2 >> CLIENT CONFIGURATION ASSISTANT >> Test Connection
. Did you install the DB2 data access middle layer within Business Objects ... go to START >> PROGRAMS >> BUSINESS OBJECTS >> SETUP >> start a custom install, see if IBM>DB2 is checked (installed)

Look Here for the client downloads:

ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/ps/products/db2/fixes/english-us/db2winIA64v8/client/runtime/

You might have to traverse the link to find your specific version

Jason - let me know where you are on this if you need help. Email is in profile. Me and DB2 Config with mainframe or UDB are quite intimate, with a long and lasting relationship.
