db2 connect to a db in a differrent server?

Hi,

One question - to connect to a db2 database in the same UNIX server we
can use from UNIX command prompt:

db2 connect to <dbnameUSer <nameusing <pwd>

Now if the db2 database is in a differrent server where/how do we
specify the server name or its ip address?

Thanks,
Sohan

To connect to a remote server:

catalog tcpip node xxxxx remote yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy server zzzzz
xxxxx name
yyyy IP or DNS name
zzzz port

then

catalog db nnnnnn at node xxxxx

Then you can connect

Thanks for the response.

I am new to this. My understanding is that this cataloging has to be
done once by dba and then anybody can directly connect to database
using db2 connect. Is this correct?

Close... the SYSADM has to do the cataloging.

The cataloging creates entries in the nodes and database directories. All
DBs listed in the latter occur "as if they are local". The DB2 client will
then figure out if the DB is really local or indeed remote and takes care
of the communication with the respective DB2 server.

We are trying to determine the easiest (and cheapest) way to get connections for about 50 Win2K workstations on our LAN to DB2 on a z/OS server. We could install DB2 Connect Personal Edition on every workstation, but that would require purchasing a license for each workstation (or, more likely, a site license). We would like to avoid that option. I've heard mixed accounts of what DB2 Connect ENTERPRISE Edition can do. One source says...
