DB2 UDB Admin tools

Hi

I'm getting a bit confused in the IBM download sites ...

I've downloaded DB2 UDB v8.1 ESE for Linux and installed it without incident
(except: on SuSE 9 I couldn;t use db2setup due to some known Java issue -
does anyone know when this might be fixed?)

Now I want to install just the Admin Tools like Control Center on Windows
desktops to manage the Linux instance. I can't see this download anywhere.
I guess I can install DB2 Personal Edition for Windows and it will be in
there, but that seems to me that I will download 500MBytes just to access
the small-ish subset I need.

Am I missing something: can the Admin suite be downloaded independently?

thanks
Neil

You can get the administration client here:
http://www-3.ibm.com/cgi-bin/db2www/...oad.d2w/report

DB2 is not supported on Linux 9 distributions because of Java issues you
mentioned. There are workarounds that have been posted previously in this
newsgroup. Check the google newsgroup archives for information.

Thanks, I appreciate that.
Sorry to labour this, but would anyone be able to pinpoint the *exact*
download? I download what I though was the right thing (350MB) but just get
the message "This installation is not valid for your processor type".

cheers
Neil

Actually, this is because I am a complete arse and downloaded the 64-bit
version ....
