Description

DB2 Connect provides fast and robust connectivity to IBM mainframe databases for On Demand Business and other applications running under UNIX and Windows operating systems. DB2 Connect has several connection solutions, including DB2 Connect Personal Edition, and a number of DB2 Connect Server products. A DB2 Connect server is a connectivity server that concentrates and manages connections from multiple desktop clients and Web applications to DB2 servers running on host or iSeries systems.

IBM's DB2 for iSeries, DB2 UDB for OS/390®, DB2 UDB for z/OS, and DB2 for VSE and VM databases continue to be the systems of choice for managing most critical data for the world's largest organizations. While these host and iSeries databases manage the data, there is a great demand to integrate this data with applications running on Linux, UNIX, and Windows workstations.

DB2 Connect Servers enable local and remote client applications to create, update, control, and manage DB2 databases and host systems using:

  • Structured Query Language (SQL)
  • DB2 APIs
  • ODBC (Open Database Connectivity)
  • JDBC (Java Database Connectivity)
  • SQLJ (embedded SQL for Java)
  • DB2 CLI (call level interface)

Application development enhancements

DB2 Connect V9.1 provides numerous enhancements that simplify database application development. Enhancements include a new Developer Workbench, enhanced functionality for Visual Studio 2005 and DB2 .NET Data Provider, and new application samples. DB2 Connect V9.1 also introduces a unified debugger and many other features that allow you to reduce development time.

BINARY, VARBINARY, and DECFLOAT data type support in .NET and CLI client applications

The data types BINARY and VARBINARY have been added to DB2 for z/OS V9, and support for the types has been added to DB2 CLI and DB2 .NET Data Provider.

  • DB2 CLI support of BINARY and VARBINARY
  • DB2 .NET Data Provider support of BINARY and VARBINARY
  • DB2 CLI support of DECFLOAT
  • DB2 .NET Data Provider support of DECFLOAT

Client support for trusted connections to DB2 for z/OS databases

DB2 CLI and DB2 Driver for JDBC and SQLJ now support making trusted connections to DB2 data servers that support trusted contexts. If the database server is configured to allow it to do so, a client can create trusted connections using ODBC, XA, or new Java methods. The user name associated with the trusted connection can then be switched without the database server having to fully authenticate the new name.

Trusted contexts are currently supported only on DB2 for z/OS.

Command-line processor (CLP) 64 KB limit for SQL statements removed

A CLP limit of 64 KB for SQL statements and for CLP commands that contain SQL statement components has now been removed. In previous releases, SQL statements generated by other DB2 tools for use within SQL procedures or routines were not valid for use within the CLP when they exceeded the old CLP 64 KB limit. The new CLP limit of approximately 2 MB is comparable with the limits on the other DB2 tools.

DB2 .NET Data Provider enhancements and support for the .NET Framework 2.0

The DB2 .NET Data Provider now supports the Microsoft™ .NET Framework V2.0 and has additional new features to help you develop more powerful .NET applications.

  • Support for the System.Data.Common base classes
  • Scrollable and updatable result sets
  • Data paging capability
  • Bulk data copy
  • Update batch size

Developer Workbench replaces the Development Center

The Development Center from DB2 UDB for Linux, UNIX, and Windows V8 is replaced in DB2 V9.1 by an Eclipse based tool called Developer Workbench. The Developer Workbench includes functionality comparable to the Development Center. In addition to existing Development Center functionality, new features include:

  • New Developer Workbench information center and tutorials
  • Ability to migrate existing Development Center projects
  • Ability to compare routines
  • Ability to deploy routines to unlike servers
  • Binary deploy
  • Ability to launch Visual Explain
  • Ability to develop SQLJ applications
  • Team support
  • Multiple JAR support
  • SQL procedure versioning for z/OS
  • Package variation support for SQL and SQLJ Java stored procedures
  • Table data editing
  • Data extract and load
  • Stored procedure debugger
  • XML support

IBM Database Add-Ins for Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 enhancements

The IBM Database Add-Ins for Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 provides tools for rapid application development, database schema development, and debugging.

  • Database activity is now performed in the Microsoft Server Explorer. The IBM Server Explorer has been removed from the IBM Database Add-Ins for Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 but still remains for IBM Database Add-Ins for Microsoft Visual Studio 2003.
  • You can build Windows applications and Web sites for the DB2 Connect server without writing any code.
  • Support is included to generate and deploy IBM Web Services on DB2 Embedded Application Server and for Microsoft Web Services using Microsoft Web service projects. Web services can be created and deployed without writing a single line of code. Support includes the ability to deploy and alter Web services, test-run Web services, and browse previously deployed Web services. All DB2 data server products are supported: DB2 Database for Linux, UNIX, and Windows; DB2 Universal Database® for iSeries; and DB2 Universal Database for z/OS.
  • New IBM designers provide an easier way for you to work with database objects.
  • You can run scripts before and after you run procedures and functions, and you can save input or in-out parameter values across Visual Studio sessions. You can commit or roll back transactions.
  • A new user interface gives you the ability to view single or multiple result sets for a procedure. Where possible, you can discover result sets automatically, and you can manually define or customize a result set definition.
  • You can seamlessly debug SQL procedures on Linux, UNIX, and Windows or zSeries servers.

Java routine class loader enhancements

Application developers who develop Java routines can now utilize multiple Java classes that have the same name by including them in separate JAR files and by explicitly identifying them in routine create statements.

The DB2 Driver for JDBC and SQLJ contains the following major enhancements for DB2 Connect:

  • Compliance with the JDBC 3.0 specification
  • Support for the new DB2 for z/OS BINARY, VARBINARY, BIGINT, and DECFLOAT column data types
  • Support for the new XML column data type
  • New DB2-only methods to support trusted connections
  • Support for progressive streaming for retrieval of LOBs and XML data
  • Support for heterogeneous pooling and connection reuse
  • SSL support
  • Tolerable errors
  • sendDataAsIs property

Client and connectivity enhancements

DB2 Connect V9.1 client and connectivity enhancements include new features such as IPv6 communication protocol support, new support for running ODBC and CLI applications without a DB2 client, and connection timeout support. These enhancements and others ensure that you have flexible and effective methods of accessing data from client systems and applications.

Connection timeout support for database applications

You can now set a connection timeout value for DB2 database connections in .NET, CLI, ODBC, and OLE DB applications. Setting a connection timeout is useful in case the database server is inaccessible. In this situation, it can take a long time for connection requests to fail and return. Setting a connection timeout enables you to set a limit to the amount of time your applications should wait for a connection.

A single client for application development and administration

Prior to Version 9, there were two similar clients, the DB2 Application Development Client and the DB2 Administration Client. The Version 9 DB2 Client merges these two clients.

Enhancements in this version include:

  • On Windows, the DB2 client can also be installed from a server installation image (or CD). This benefits customers who want to use the same CD to install the DB2 server on a server computer and the DB2 client on workstations used by administrators or developers. It is no longer necessary to use the separate client CD to install only the DB2 client.
  • On Windows, the server fix pack now contains the fix packs for both the server and the DB2 client. If you have both a DB2 client and server installed on the same computer, you need to download and apply a single fix pack image to upgrade both the server and client. If you have only a DB2 client on a computer, client fix pack images are still available.

Enhancements to other parts of the product also benefit the DB2 client.

  • Multiple copies of a client can be installed on the same computer. These copies can be the same or different versions; for example, V8.2, V9.1.100, and V9.1.300.
  • When migrating a client from Version 8, you now have the choice of replacing the existing client or adding the client while keeping the existing version.

DB2 Runtime Client enhancements (Windows)

Prior to Version 9, there were two similar clients on Windows, the DB2 Runtime Client and the DB2 Run-Time Client Lite. The Version 9 Runtime Client on Windows has evolved from the Version 8 Run-Time Client Lite.

The following enhancements to DB2 Runtime Client are included in this release:

  • It is licensed so it can be redistributed freely with applications that are sold to other companies.
  • It is available in a 64-bit version.
  • It can coexist with other DB2 products on the same computer.

Enhancements to other parts of the product also benefit the DB2 Runtime Client:

  • Multiple copies of a client can be installed on the same computer. These copies can be the same or different versions; for example, V8.2, V9.1.100, and V9.1.300.
  • Version 9 introduces a new application driver for ODBC or CLI applications. Some customers who used a runtime client in the past may prefer this option as it provides an even smaller application deployment footprint.

New support for running ODBC and CLI applications without a DB2 client

The DB2 Driver for ODBC and CLI can now be installed and used to run ODBC and CLI applications without a DB2 client. When the driver is installed without a DB2 client, it still provides runtime support for ODBC and CLI, and it now also provides connectivity for ODBC and CLI applications.

Various install options are available for the IBM DB2 Driver for ODBC and CLI:

  • You can install the driver on a machine that already has a DB2 client installed.
  • You can have multiple installations of this driver on a single machine.

Being able to install the DB2 Driver for ODBC and CLI without a DB2 client makes deploying database applications easier:

  • You can include the driver in your database application installation package.
  • Distribution size, installation footprint, and memory footprint are all reduced.

Federated enhancements

A federated system is a special type of distributed database management system. With federation, you can send distributed requests to multiple data sources within a single SQL statement.

Plug-in for retrieving user mappings from an external repository or LDAP server

A federated server uses a user mapping to enable a connection to many data sources. By default, the user mappings are stored in the DB2 database, which has certain limitations. A sample plug-in is now provided that allows you to retrieve the user mappings from an external repository; for example, a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server. User mappings that are stored in an LDAP server offer the following benefits:

  • Lower maintenance
  • Increased security

Statement-level isolation

For statements that use nicknames, the isolation-clause only statement has an effect on nicknames that access the DB2 data sources.

For all other uses of nicknames to relational data sources, the federated server maps its current isolation level to a corresponding isolation level at the data source, at each connection to the data source. After a connection is made to a data source, the isolation level for duration of the connection cannot be changed.

Two-phase commit for multi-vendor data sources

Federated two-phase commit is now available for the supported data sources of the WebSphere® Information Integrator federated server. Two-phase commit combines updates to multiple sources in one transaction so that all sources involved are updated or none are updated. This strategy ensures that the sources remain synchronized.

DB2 Connect users may be interested in two-phase commit capabilities for multi-vendor data sources offered by the WebSphere Information Integrator federated server.

Installation, migration, and fix pack considerations

With new features and enhancements such as coexistence of multiple DB2 Connect versions and fix packs on Windows, manual installation enhancements, and support for concurrent copies of DB2 Connect servers on Linux and UNIX, DB2 Connect V9.1 allows your IT staff to spend more time supporting business goals instead of installing and configuring database systems.

DB2 Connect can be installed using a nonadministrator user ID (Windows)

Anyone who does not want to use an administrator ID when installing DB2 Connect on Windows, now has another option. You can use the Windows operating system elevated privileges feature to perform the installation with a Windows Power User ID or a Restricted User ID.

Installation and coexistence of multiple DB2 Connect versions and fix packs

DB2 V9 on Windows introduces the ability to install multiple DB2 Connect Servers and client copies on the same system. Each DB2 Connect installation copy can either be at the same level or at a different level of DB2 Connect. On Linux and UNIX, this support does not require the use of an alternate fix pack.

When installing DB2 Connect on a machine that already has a DB2 product copy installed, you can install a new DB2 copy or work with and update an existing DB2 copy.

Manageability enhancements

In this section, the following products are referred to collectively as DB2 UDB for z/OS:

  • DB2 UDB for z/OS, V8
  • DB2 UDB for OS/390 and z/OS, V7

Automated evaluation of object maintenance policies by the DB2 UDB for z/OS health monitor

The Control Center's Create and Change Object Maintenance Policy wizards now allow you to automate the evaluation of object maintenance policies by the DB2 UDB for z/OS health monitor. On the z/OS system, a DB2 UDB for z/OS health monitor is started as a task for each DB2 subsystem to be monitored.

EXEC SQL utility support for loading data into DB2 UDB for z/OS tables

  • DB2 UDB for z/OS, V8
  • DB2 UDB for OS/390 and z/OS, V7

The Control Center's Load Table and Load on Table Space notebooks now support the INCURSOR option of the LOAD utility. The Control Center uses the EXEC SQL utility control statement to declare a cursor, and the result table from the declared cursor is used as input to the LOAD utility.

Version 9 incompatibilities with previous releases

  • Type 3 JDBC support is discontinued.
  • Vendor load API (sqluvtld) is discontinued.
  • VSE/VM objects are no longer supported in the DB2 Control Center.

Product positioning

DB2 Connect Personal Edition

DB2 Connect Personal Edition provides the API drivers and connectivity infrastructure to enable direct connectivity from Windows and Linux desktop applications to mainframe and iSeries database servers. This product is specifically designed and licensed for enabling two-tier client/server applications running on individual workstations and, as such, is not appropriate for use on servers.

Unlike server-based products (DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition, Application Server Edition, and Unlimited Edition), DB2 Connect Personal Edition does not provide the advanced functions such as Mobility on Demand, federated database support, server-based monitoring or connection concentrator, and associated load-balancing and failover support.

DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition

DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition is a combination of DB2 Connect Server and DB2 client software designed to address the needs of organizations that require robust connectivity from a variety of desktop systems to mainframe and iSeries database servers. DB2 client software is deployed on desktop systems and provides API drivers that connect client/server applications running on these desktop systems to a DB2 Connect Server. Designed to provide connectivity for client/server applications in large-scale, demanding environments, DB2 Connect Server provides connection pooling and connection concentrator functions to maximize application availability while minimizing mainframe resource usage.

DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition licensing terms are geared towards addressing the needs of two-tier client/server applications. License charges for the DB2 Connect Enterprise Server Edition product are based on the number of users of the product. Two types of licensing users are provided: concurrent users and registered users.

Because charges for the DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition are based on the number of users (registered or concurrent) and because determining the number of concurrent users in mobile and Web-based applications is very difficult or even impossible, DB2 Connect Application Server Edition and DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition are preferred licensing options for such environments.

DB2 Connect Application Server Edition

DB2 Connect Application Server Edition is identical to the DB2 Connect Enterprise Server in its technology. Just like the DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition, it is designed for large-scale, demanding environments. However, its licensing terms and conditions are meant to address specific needs of multitier client/server applications as well as applications that utilize Web technologies. DB2 Connect Application Server Edition license charges are based on the size or the number of processors available to the application servers where the application is running. License charges are not affected by the number of users of the application, the size of the DB2 Connect server itself, or the size of the mainframe database server.

For example, an application that runs on three 2-CPU application servers (like WebSphere Application Server) requires a 6-CPU license (3*2=6 CPUs) for the DB2 Connect Application Server Edition, regardless of how many CPUs DB2 Connect is run on.

DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition for zSeries

DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition is ideal for organizations with extensive usage of DB2 Connect, especially where multiple applications are involved. This product provides program code of the DB2 Connect Personal Edition as well as program code identical to the DB2 Connect Application Server Edition for unlimited deployment throughout an organization.

DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition license fees are based on the size of the DB2 for OS/390 and z/OS database server (measured in MSUs) and are not affected by either the number of processors available to the DB2 Connect Servers or the number of processors available to application servers where the application is running. This makes DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition an ideal choice for organizations where multiple applications are utilizing DB2 Connect, or organizations with a mix of two-tier, multitier client/server, Web-based, and mobile applications.

DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition for iSeries

DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition is ideal for organizations with extensive usage of DB2 Connect, especially where multiple applications are involved. This product provides program code of the DB2 Connect Personal Edition as well as program code identical to the DB2 Connect Application Server Edition for unlimited deployment throughout an organization. DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition for iSeries license fees are based on the number of processors allocated to the data source running on i5/OS® or OS/400® operating systems. Charges for the program are not based on the number of processors attached or available to the DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition for iSeries itself. Unlimited users are permitted. This makes DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition for iSeries an ideal choice for organizations where multiple applications are utilizing DB2 Connect or organizations with a mix of two-tier, multitier client/server, Web-based, and mobile applications.

Security, auditability, and control

DB2 Connect Personal Edition, DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition, DB2 Connect Application Server Edition, DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition for zSeries, and DB2 Unlimited Edition for iSeries use security and auditability features to encrypt user IDs, passwords, and the data that flows between the client application and the backend database server. This ensures that only valid users are permitted access to the database servers. DB2 Connect interfaces with Microsoft™ Active Directory and Kerberos security mechanisms.

The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communication facilities.

Charge metrics definitions

Processor

A processor (commonly called a CPU or core ) is a functional unit within a computing device that interprets and executes instructions. A processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic and/or logic unit. With multi-core technology each core is considered a processor. With full capacity licensing, a proof of entitlement (PoE) must be acquired for all activated processors on the server available to the program or a component of the Program.

Managed Processor

A processor (commonly called a CPU or core ) is a functional unit within a computing device that interprets and executes instructions. A processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic and/or logic unit. With multi-core technology each core is considered a processor. A proof of entitlement (POE) must be acquired for all activated processors on the server in the computing environment affiliated with the program or component of the Program rather than on the server where the program or component of the Program is run.

Authorized User

An authorized user is one and only one individual (named or unnamed) within or outside Your enterprise. A proof of entitlement (POE) must be obtained for each individual user accessing the program in any manner. A Program licensed under an authorized user POE may be installed on a single computer or server, and accessed by multiple users, provided that a POE has been obtained for each individual user accessing the program either directly or indirectly (via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means on behalf of the user.

Client Device

A client device is a computing device that requests the execution of a set of commands, procedures, or applications from another computer system that is typically referred to as a server. Multiple client devices may share access to a common server. A client device generally has some processing capability or is programmable to allow a user to do work. Examples include, but are not limited to, notebook computers, desktop computers, desk side computers, technical workstations, appliances, automated teller machines, point-of-sale terminals, tills and cash registers, and kiosks.

Host server

A host server license must be obtained for each independent DB2 for OS/390 and z/OS database server being accessed with DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition. If the server is part of a sysplex (a cluster of System/390® or IBM zSeries servers), only one host server entitlement is required for all mainframe servers that are a part of the sysplex. When multiple independent mainframe servers or multiple sysplexes are used, one host server license must be obtained for each mainframe server or sysplex.

The following is a summary of the licensing terms. For further information, refer to the specific program terms and conditions located with the product in the /db2/license directory.

Terms and conditions for all products

Charge metrics

Refer to the Charge structure section for definitions of charges.

License key registration

Before using this program, you agree to register the appropriate license key, using the included DB2 License Center component. The license key is included with your proof of entitlement.

Program components

The program contains components that are provided to support your authorized use of the program on server machines within your enterprise. If you want to perform multiple installations or distribution of these components, you must contact IBM or its reseller to obtain the appropriate licenses.

Usage restriction — Database Enterprise Developers Edition

If this program is acquired through the IBM Database Enterprise Developer Edition, this program can be installed on one or more shared servers for use by all authorized users with valid IBM Database Enterprise Developer Edition licenses, up to the level of use authorized by the PoE. You may use all components of the program only for the purposes of evaluating, demonstrating, testing, and developing application programs.

Usage restriction — Other IBM programs

If this program is acquired through the acquisition of another IBM program, the program-unique terms contained within that other IBM program take precedence.

DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition

Charges for concurrent users are not applicable when connections to this program are made through the Internet or intranet. When using this program to support applications that use Web-based technologies and rely on connections made from the Internet or intranet, use-based charges must be based on the number of authorized users. If determining the number of authorized users is not possible or not practical, DB2 Connect Application Server Edition should be used.

Connections made to this program through other programs that act as connection concentrators must be counted as DB2 Connect users and are subject to use-based charges as either authorized users or concurrent users.

DB2 Connect must be licensed to a minimum of 25 authorized users or concurrent users per server on which DB2 Connect is installed or the total number of authorized users or concurrent users accessing the DB2 Connect data server as defined previously, whichever is greater.

DB2 Connect Application Server Edition

This program provides communication infrastructure and programming APIs for Web servers or application servers to connect to data residing on mainframe and midrange systems. Charges for this program are based on the number of processors attached or available to these Web servers or application servers. Charges for this program are not based on the number of servers or processors attached or available to the program itself.

Charges for this program are also not affected by the placement of the program. For example, the same charges apply whether the program is installed on the same server as the Web server or the application server, or if it is installed on separate servers. The total number of processors attached or available to the Web servers or application servers may not exceed the number authorized by the applicable PoEs. If the total number exceeds the quantity in your PoEs, you must notify IBM or its reseller, as stated in the IPLA.

High availability/failover licensing

DB2 Connect Application Server Edition license charges are based on the number of processors used by an application server and not the DB2 Connect Server. Therefore, the terms idle standby and active standby apply to the application server configuration and not to he DB2 Connect Server configuration.

In active standby or idle standby, you must acquire the correct number of processor entitlements:

  • In an active standby configuration, the program is operational on all servers to service user transactions or queries. Because each of the active standby application servers is used to operate the program for user transactions or queries before or after a failure, the program must be fully licensed. In active standby, you must license the program for the number of processors attached or available to the active standby application server. For example, if the active standby application server machine has four processors, you must obtain four processor entitlements.
  • In an idle standby configuration, an idle standby server has the application server installed on it, but the application server is not processing any end-user transactions or query workloads. An application server is considered idle if it is used exclusively for administrative actions that assist in failover scenarios, such as having a database in roll forward pending state to support log shipping, or in making a flash copy of a DB2 database and then performing a database backup of this copy on another server. In idle standby, you must license the program for one processor per idle standby server only, regardless of the number of processors attached or available to the application server.

Usage restriction — Mobility on Demand component

The PoE that you acquired for this program entitles you to use the Mobility on Demand component. Your use of the Mobility on Demand component is limited in that the sync server component of Mobility on Demand must coexist on the same server as the licensed DB2 data server. The Mobility on Demand component may not be used for any other purpose.

DB2 Unlimited Edition for zSeries

Licensing and charges are not based on the number of users or specific users being registered but on the Millions of Service Units (MSU) per Hour entitlements of the DB2 Universal Database® for z/OS and OS/390 or DB2 Server for VSE and VM server. DB2 Connect use-based charges for MSUs apply to any single DB2 for z/OS and OS/390 subsystem or DB2 Server for VSE and VM database server that users will be connecting to.

Resources Available or Attached (MSUs): Charges for this program are based on the total MSU capacity of the attached DB2 Universal Database for z/OS and OS/390, or DB2 Server for VSE and VM host system. Where the host system is part of a Parallel Sysplex®, MSUs are based on the DB2 entitlements of the entire sysplex.

The total capacity of the DB2 Universal Database for DB2 for z/OS and OS/390 or DB2 Server for VSE and VM system attached or available may not exceed the total number authorized by the applicable proofs of entitlement. If the total number exceeds the quantity in your PoE, you must notify IBM or its reseller as stated in the IPLA.

Usage restriction — Mobility on Demand component

The program includes the Mobility on Demand component. Your use of the Mobility on Demand component is limited to use in support of your licensed use of the program. The sync server component of Mobility on Demand must coexist on the same server as the licensed DB2 program. The Mobility on Demand component may not be used for any other purpose.

DB2 Unlimited Edition for iSeries

This program must be used in conjunction with DB2 for iSeries as the primary data source running on i5/OS or OS/400® operating systems. It can be used to connect to other data sources but not to DB2 for OS/390 and z/OS nor DB2 Server for VSE and VM. If you have a need to use this program with DB2 for OS/390 and z/OS or DB2 Server for VSE and VM, you must acquire a proper license for either IBM DB2 Connect Personal Edition (5724-B56), IBM DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition (5724-B62), IBM DB2 Connect Application Server Edition (5724-D54), or IBM DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition (5765-F30).

Managed processors: Charging for this program is based on the number of processors allocated to the data source running on i5/OS or OS/400 operating systems. Charges for the program are not based on the number of processors attached or available to the DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition for iSeries itself. Unlimited users are permitted.

The total number of processors allocated to the data source running on i5/OS or OS/400 operating systems may not exceed the total number authorized by the applicable proofs of entitlement. If the total number exceeds the quantity in your proofs of entitlement, you must notify IBM or its reseller as stated in the IPLA.

Usage restriction — Mobility on Demand component

The program includes the Mobility on Demand component. Your use of the Mobility on Demand component is limited to use in support of your licensed use of the program. The sync server component of Mobility on Demand must coexist on the same server as the licensed DB2 program. The Mobility on Demand component may not be used for any other purpose.

DB2 Connect Personal Edition

This program is licensed for installation and use by an individual user at a single workstation within your enterprise. This product is not licensed for use with application servers.

Software Maintenance applies: Yes

Software Maintenance, previously referred to as Software Subscription and Technical Support, is included in the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement. Installation and technical support is provided by the Software Maintenance offering of the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement. This fee service provides voice and electronic access to IBM support organizations.

IBM includes one year of Software Maintenance with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Maintenance can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available.

While your Software Maintenance is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short duration installation and usage (how-to) questions; and code-related questions. IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, only to your IS technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center. (This assistance is not available to your end users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, every day of the year. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Guide at

Software Maintenance does not include assistance for the design and development of applications, your use of programs in other than their specified operating environment, or failures caused by products for which IBM is not responsible under this agreement.

For more information about the Passport Advantage Agreement, visit the Passport Advantage Web site at

Complimentary products: IBM provides licensed copies of complimentary products in our product boxes. The complimentary products are not upgradeable through the originally ordered product. They are only upgradeable separately as individual products. If a fully licensed product is required, contact IBM or your reseller. In addition, complimentary products do not entitle customers to receive service support.

iSeries Software Maintenance applies: No

Educational allowance available: Not applicable

IBM Electronic Services

IBM Global Services has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to put you on the road to higher systems availability. IBM Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that provides you with an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available on the eServer platform. These services provide the opportunity for greater system availability due to faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. IBM Electronic Services is comprised of two separate but complementary elements: IBM Electronic Services news page and IBM Electronic Service Agent™.

IBM Electronic Services news page provides you with a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used by customers to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The IBM Electronic Service Agent is no-additional charge software that resides on your eServer system. It is designed to proactively monitor events and transmit system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, customer-defined timetable. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tracks system inventory, hardware error logs, and performance information. If the server is under a current IBM maintenance service agreement or within the IBM warranty period, the Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to provide proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent will be made available to IBM service support representatives when they are helping answer your questions or diagnosing problems.
