Ensuring the Db2 libraries are available to ZDT/Db2

ZDT/Db2 requires access to the same Db2® libraries as the DB2I online utility.

You can allocate the Db2 libraries required by ZDT/Db2 using one of the following methods:
  • You can include the Db2 libraries in your TSO logon procedure; or in a CLIST or EXEC run as part of the TSO logon procedure; or in a CLIST or EXEC executed prior to the initialization of ZDT/Db2. This method is not appropriate if ZDT/Db2 will be connecting to Db2 systems at different version/maintenance levels. If you use this method you might not need to specify the Db2 libraries in the HFM2SSDM macros, but you will still need to review the contents of the HFM2POPT options module. See Changing the default options.
  • Specify the Db2 libraries in the HFM2SSDM macro entry for the Db2 system. This is the preferred method and allows ZDT/Db2 to connect to Db2 systems at different version/maintenance levels. The Db2 libraries are allocated as part of the ZDT/Db2 connect process, and de-allocated at the end of the ZDT/Db2 session, or when ZDT/Db2 connects to a different Db2 system. See HFM2SSDM.
