Hi Parameshawar,

There is no special requirement / configuration required for DB2 and is the same like other Databases. You just need to install the DB2 client on your Campaign marketing server - from where you want to connect to DB2. For downloading this driver please refer to:

http://www-01.ibm.com/software/data/db2/linux-unix-windows/downloads.html :

Generic process to install this driver on a Cent-Os or Debian server :

tar -xvf ibm_data_server_runtime_client_linuxx64_v10.5.tar.gz

yum -y install xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.13.0-23.1.el6.centos.x86_64 xterm xorg-x11-fonts*

X &

xterm &

Switch to the xterm view

cd ~/rtcl

./db2setup

next

next

Choose Typical 290 - 350 MB, next

next

install it on /opt/ibm/db2/V10.5, next

Create a DB2 instance, next

Finish.

Now in Campaign:

After you install the Access external data package on your campaign instance (Tools>advanced>import package) , You need to create an external account of type : External Database and Connection type: DB2.

Then fill in the required information as shown in the screenshot attached and should be able to connect.

Hi  Parmeshwar,

I hope this article will help you. Please note that the Federated data Access package is an optional module and there is an additional license required for this.

Let me know in case of any trouble.
