db2 connect

P: n/a
I have just installed db2 connect v8.1 (personal edition) on my PC - and
reinstalled DB2 Application development client (again v8.1 FP4). When trying
to use this to connect via CLI to an AS/400 (which is set up correctly
according to the 'DB2 Version 8 Connectivity Cheat sheet' by Raul F Chong) I
get an error message from db2licm.exe telling me that 'The procedure entry
point sqlofgets could not be located in the dynamic link library
DB2SYS.dll'.

Does anyone know what this means - or how to fix it please ?

Sounds like some part of the install didn't complete successfully. Post
error msg #.

Also, is it possible that the A/D client is at fp4, but DB2 Connect is not?

Larry,

I didn't get any error messages during the install. The first thing I get
when trying to 'connect' is a window (with 'db2bp.exe - Entry Point not
found' header and the error message as listed below (no error message no).
When I OK that (only option), I get
SQL8002N Connect processing failed; a valid product license was not found.
SQLSTATE=42968

This is exactly the same message I was getting when trying to connect to an
AS/400 before installing DB2 connect.

Wrt versions, I downloaded db2 connect from an IBM web site - but am having
some difficulty now finding where I got it from (part of the PWD site I
think). Can I tell somehow what version I have ?

Regards

Steve

Not sure of exactly what to make of this. The "Entry Point Not Found"
sounds like something didn't install completely. But I believe the
sql8002n means that a try-and-buy license expired. You may need to open
a PMR unless someone else has any suggestions.

Larry (and all)

I have got this resolved via a PMR now. The basic problem was that I assumed
I needed to install DB2 Connect aswell as the FP4 version of the App Dev
Client - whereas all I really needed to do was a custom install using the
DB2 COnnect v8.1 FP4 software - making sure I included all of the client
apps I wanted.

Thanks for your help.

Regards
Steve
