System requirements: Software requirements for IBM DB2 Content Manager Enterprise Edition Version 8.4.2

Product documentation


Abstract

This page describes the minimum system requirements for the software to operate IBM® DB2® Content Manager Enterprise Edition V8.4.2.

Important:
Because other products frequently ship fixes, updates, and new releases, testing every configuration is not possible. In general, you can install and run with updates to supported products if those updates are forward compatible. For detailed examples about what is supported, see the IBM Content Manager prerequisite support policy at http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27018047.

For DB2 Content Manager Enterprise Edition V8.4.2 hardware requirements, see the Related Information link at the bottom of this document.

Requirements for DB2 Content Manager for z/OS® V8.4.2 are listed separately. See the Related information link at the bottom of this document.

    * MQ/JMS 64-bit libraries for a 64-bit JVM

    MQ_JAVA_LIB_PATH is the environment variable for the MQ Java library path. On AIX or Solaris, use either the 32-bit libraries or the 64-bit libraries. Use the 64-bit libraries only if you are running your application in a 64-bit Java virtual machine (JVM) on a 64-bit platform. Otherwise, use the 32-bit libraries.

    AIX:
    /usr/mqm/java/lib (32-bit libraries)
    /usr/mqm/java/lib64 (64-bit libraries)

    Solaris:
    /opt/mqm/java/lib (32-bit libraries)
    /opt/mqm/java/lib64 (64-bit libraries)
