DB2 uses "security plugins" for authentication. The default happens to be
the security plugin, which refers to the OS. You can use other plugins
(just search for them), depending on the authentication mechanism you want
to exploit.

thanks very much for your reply.

i have downloaded the ldap authentication plugin for db2 9 and
followed the guide to try it.It seems that i must create an db2
account and group orgnization structure in ldap server, do u have a
script file to create it automatically? Or a detailed guide to create
groups in ldap eg. SYSADM and so on. thanks again!
