Requirements for clients

Ensure that your computer meets the following requirements before you install the client components of DB2® Warehouse.

Note: DB2 Warehouse does not support the installation of both clients and servers on the same computer in a production environment. For production environments, the operating systems that are supported by the data server and application server are not the same operating systems that are supported by the clients.

Disk space

For each copy of DB2 Warehouse you install on a computer, make sure that you have enough disk space to run the installation program and then run DB2 Warehouse. Additionally, Passport Advantage® customers need extra disk space to store the downloadable installation images.

Temporary space for installable download images (Passport Advantage only)

Before installing DB2 Warehouse, Passport Advantage customers must download the installation images to the target computer. These images contain the installation executable files for the DB2 Warehouse components you are installing. This space is different from the space needed to run the installation program.

Approximately 1.5 GB of temporary disk space is recommended to store the installation images. If you install the documentation, you need another 1.5 GB.

Temporary space for running the installation program

Approximately 500 MB of disk space is recommended to run the installation program.

Permanent space for the installed components

Approximately 2.0 GB of disk space is recommended for the installed product.

Memory

Memory for installing the product

A minimum of 1 GB of memory is recommended to install the client applications.
