Defining AS400 Linked Server

fn
Can anyone help me understand what it takes to define a Linked Server
connection to an IBM eSeries (AS400)? Do I need Microsoft's SNA Server
or some other product or can I simply do it with the tools provided with
SQL Server 2000?

Any guidance would be very appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Farid,

I managed this installing the AS400 Client Access for windows components
on the database-server.
At least you need the as400 odbc-database-driver on the windows-server.
Create a (system) odbc connection to your as400 and then create a linked
server to this odbc connection.
you maybe have to tweak / play around with the odbc-options for the
as400-connection to make it work.

just to point out the direction...

I found IBM's Client Access drivers to be error prone and slow.

Although not-free, Hit Software, www.hitsw.com, provides OLEDB and
ODBC drivers for accessing DB2/AS400 servers. I used the OLEDB driver
with great success.

I am trying to connect to a DB2 database on an AS400 via ASP. On the server I can connect fine using VB, but keep getting a communcation link failure when using the exact same code in ASP. Here is my code (I know the AS400 ODBC DSN works ok because I can connect to it from MS Access with no problems): set cnn = server.createobject("adodb.connection") set rs = server.createobject("adodb.recordset") cnn.open "DSN=SYSTEM2"

Hi, I'm trying to dug this issue since couple of days but couldn't find any solution. I have SQL server 2000 SP 3 and Host Integration Server 2000 SP 1 running. I'm able to download data from AS400/DB2(V5R2M0) into SQL server, using Microsoft OLE DB Provider for DB2 in DTS. But when I tried to upload the same table (downloaded from AS400 into Sql server) back to AS400, I got the following error.

I posted this to the adonet newsgroup and was recommended to post here. Thank you for any help: Okay, I need a bit of advice. I have an ODBC data adapter being filled by AS400 which is very slow. If I were they user I would think that the computer locked and try to stop the program, reboot, whatever. So because management is still "investingating" ways of getting a faster connection from our primary AS400 (which will never go away)...

We have an As400 system that has program which executes batch files which resides on the SQL server 7.0 computer . Those batch files run SQL server jobs using isql.

This process working fine. But now we have installed SQL 2005 and trying to move ....

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
