possible to run Db2 with only the runtime client?

P: n/a
Hi
I just installed the runtime client on my windows machine. when i go
inside the SQLLIB\bin folder i can see db2.exe. is it possible to use
this db2 bundled with runtime client for command line processing?
Because all the documents tell you to get an administration/
application client to do such thing.

Thanks

You need to read the manuals. The runtime client is the minimum
necessary install to use a command line to connect to remote databases.
The current runtime client doesn't include the Client Configuration
Assistant (GUI interface) so you'll need to learn to use the command
line to define the node and database to the client.

It's actually worse than that. The run time client has no access to any
administrative command (REORG, BACKUP,). These are Administrator Commands
and require the Administration Client.

Thanks. I finally decided to install the full DB2 client. so i just un-
installed the runtime client and installed the DB2 client. I think i
am in a much better shape now ;o) I have GUI tools and ODBC
connectivity as well.
