Here is the high level procedure to use DB2 11.1.3.3 (or later fix levels) with SDS 6.4.0.16 (or later fix levels):
  1. Download the following from Passport Advantage
    1. SDS 6.4 (SDS 6.4 base level ISO images: (Note: If you have a working SDS 6.4 instance with DB2 10.5, then skip this step)
      Refer to the platform specific tables for the Passport Advantage part numbers of SDS 6.4: AIX, Linux and Windows.
    2. DB2 Activation parts:
      ESE: CNB25ML - DB2_ESE_Restricted_Activation_11.1.zip
      HC: CNB26ML - DB2_OHC_Restricted_Activation_11.1.zip
  2. Create a DB2 prereq check skip file which helps in SDS LDAP Server package installation:
    • AIX: 
      mkdir -p /opt/IBM/ldap/V6.4/install
      touch /opt/IBM/ldap/V6.4/install/IBMLDAP_INSTALL_SKIPDB2REQ
    • Linux:
      mkdir -p /opt/ibm/ldap/V6.4/install
      touch /opt/ibm/ldap/V6.4/install/IBMLDAP_INSTALL_SKIPDB2REQ
    • Windows:
      mkdir c:\Program Files\IBM\ldap\V6.4\install
      type nul > c:\Program Files\IBM\ldap\V6.4\install\IBMLDAP_INSTALL_SKIPDB2REQ
  3. Install SDS 6.4 base, GSKit and Java SDK from the SDS 6.4 iso image: ( Note: If you have a working SDS 6.4 instance with DB2 10.5, then skip this step)
    Refer to Knowledge Center for Installation on AIX, Linux and Windows.
     
  4. Install recommended fix levels of SDS 6.4.0.16 (or later) along with latest GSKIT and Java SDK by referring to SDS 6.4 recommended fixes table.
     
  5. Install DB2 11.1.3.3 or later fix level - Install full DB2 SERVER product:
    Refer to Knowledge Center for installation on Linux / Unix and Windows Server platforms.
     
  6. Extract and apply the "DB2 11.1 ESE Activation Key" followed by "DB2 11.1 HC Activation Key" provided by SDS 6.4:
    • These activation keys (licenses) provided by SDS 6.4 should be used for the purpose of SDS 6.4 ONLY under the provided license terms.
    • Unpack the DB2 11.1 ESE Activation Part file "DB2_ESE_Restricted_Activation_11.1.zip" 
    • The activation key file can be found at the location: <unpack_path>/ese_o/db2/license/db2ese_o.lic
    • Run db2licm command to register "DB2 Server product" with "Enterprise Server Edition" license using the above activation key file.
      • Linux or UNIX operating systems:
        <db2_11.1_install_path>/adm/db2licm -a <unpack_path>/ese_o/db2/license/db2ese_o.lic
      • Windows operating systems using a "DB2 command window as Administrator":
        <db2_11.1_install_path>\bin\db2licm -a <unpack_path>\ese_o\db2\license\db2ese_o.lic
      • Verify the DB2 activation:
        db2licm -l
        
    • Unpack the DB2 11.1 High Capacity (HC) Activation Part file "DB2_OHC_Restricted_Activation_11.1.zip"
    • The activation key file can be found at the location - <unpack_path>/hc/db2/license/db2hc.lic
    • Run db2licm command to register "DB2 Server product" with "HC" license using the activation key file.
      • Linux or UNIX operating systems:
        <db2_11.1_install_path>>/adm/db2licm -a db2hc.lic
      • Windows operating systems using a "DB2 command window as Administrator":
        <db2_11.1_install_path>>\bin\db2licm -a db2hc.lic
      • Verify the DB2 activation:
        db2licm -l
  7. Check and update the SDS 6.4 global ldapdb.properties file to use DB2 11.1:
    • Location of global ldapdb.properties file for SDS 6.4:
      • AIX: /opt/IBM/ldap/V6.4/etc/ldapdb.properties
      • Linux: /opt/ibm/ldap/V6.4/etc/ldapdb.properties
      • Windows: <SDS_V6.4_Install_Location>\etc\ldapdb.properties
        If SDS 6.4 is installed at default location then the file is located at "C:\Program Files\IBM\ldap\V6.4\etc\ldapdb.properties"
    • Find DB2 11.1 install location, and version info:
      • AIX/Linux:
        /usr/local/bin/db2ls
      • Windows using a "DB2 command window as Administrator":
        db2level
    • Create/Update SDS 6.4 global ldapdb.properties file using a normal text editor like Notepad / Notepad++ for Windows OR vi / vim on Linux and AIX:
      • ldapdb.properties file requires two lines in the format:
        currentDB2InstallPath=<supported_db2_install_location>
        currentDB2Version=<supported_db2_version_level>
      • AIX - Sample of updated contents of ldapdb,properties file:
        currentDB2InstallPath=/opt/IBM/db2/V11.1
        currentDB2Version=11.1.3.3
      • Linux - Sample of updated contents of ldapdb,properties file:
        currentDB2InstallPath=/opt/ibm/db2/V11.1
        currentDB2Version=11.1.3.3 
      • Windows: Sample of updated contents of ldapdb,properties file:
        currentDB2InstallPath=C:\Program Files\IBM\SQLLIB
        currentDB2Version=11.1.3030.239
    • After updating SDS 6.4 global ldapdb.properties file with the DB2 11.1 Location and version as on your system, save and close the file.
       
  8. Next Steps:
    • Create and configure a new SDS 6.4 instance
    • Upgrade an instance of a previous version (V6.3 / V6.3.1) to SDS 6.4 instance:
    • On an existing SDS 6.4 instance with DB2 10.5, upgrade the DB2 to 11.1 using "idsdbmigr" tool provided by SDS 6.4 (in sbin folder of SDS 6.4 installation)
      • Stop ibmslapd and ibmdiradm processes for the SDS 6.4 instance.
      • Upgrade SDS 6.4 instance's associcated DB2 instance and database to 11.1 level from 10.5 level:
        idsdbmigr -I <sds_instance_name> -N <db2_11.1_install_location>
