unable to connect to a db2 server through the control center ... - Help !

P: n/a
Hi again ,

I've been trying to connect to a distant database with
my control center on WinXp .

I'm using a personnal edition DB2 v8.1.9.700 for the control center on
WinXp.

I've setup a node (a distant connection ) in order to reach this
distant database but it doesn't seem to work ... The distant database
is in a older version DB2 v7.1.0.40 and is on a linux RedHat ES3.0 .

Each time , I have SQL0805N the module "NULLID.SYSSH200"
hasn't been found . SQLSTATE=51002
I read on this newsgroup that Personal UDB is restricted and that i
won't be able to connect to a distant database .

I just want to know if it is true .

TIA,
Andy the beginner in DB2 .

Hi Andy,
Use db2 Configuration Assist and test whether its possible to ping
the database from the client. in db2 environment(db2cmd), execute
list db2 directory
command and see whether you have be listed with remote database.

If its not possible, you have to re-configure.

Read the article for more information.

Correct me if any problem..

Hi Thiru ,

Big thanks for your answer .

I did what was said in the "DB2 Version 8 Connectivity Cheat Sheet" and
it works fine .

But it brings another question : why does the control center display
the same error ?

Is there something to do about it on the server side (adding some java
library or a db2 option) ?

Thanks for the help and if u can answer this question , it's going to
be the answer that makes my day .

Make sure you close down the Control Center and restart it. It has a very
nasty habit of storing things in cache.

Hello,

AFAIK, DB2 Version 8.x-clients call a set of metadata stored procedures to
gather catalog information from the server side at connect time. This
procedures seem to be missing in servers prior to V7.2. I think it's still
possible, to download a V7.2 personal client from the IBM sites to try it
out....

Cheers & Beers

Lots of issues:

1) V8 Control Center will not work with V7 instances
2) V8 clients can connect to V7 databases, but there are lots of
restrictions (see V8 migration docs for more info)
3) I didn't think DB2 V7.x was supported on RHES 3.0
4) The error about NULLID.SYSSH200 is because you haven't
performed the BINDs with your V8 code in the V7 database.

I think the message is telling you the server db is not finding the proper
package for the utility (control centet) you are running.
Your server is at V7 level and it does not know of V8 stuff (your admin
client).
Try to rebind your utilities from your admin client. I think the command
goes:
D:\SQLLIB\BND db2 bind @db2ubind.lst blocking all grant public
I don't have my docs. so check the command.

HTH, Pierre.

Hi ,

thanks for everyone input (Pierre , Walter & Ian) .

I'm going to check this out . Indeed I have thought yesterday about
installing the 7.x version .

And the RH version is 2.2.19-6.2.12enterprise which i don't know if it
is RH ES 3 .

I just want to know what is a bind ? is it a way to create a node ?

I don't think so but anyway I'm going to check the almighty manual .

Thanx and cheers !

Regards,
Andy

Hi all ,

Just to say that it is real that a V7 server can only be reached by a
v7 client .

The bind command translates static SQL statements into a "section". All SQL
stmts of an appl. will be sections and they are stored, by the bind process,
into the db as a "package".
When your appl or utility runs a connect to the db statement, the package is
pulled from the database catalog table and stored in the package cache in
memory and you're good to execute.
