Connecting to Db2 subsystems

During initialization, BMC AMI Command Center discovers all Db2 subsystems on the sysplex where a UIM server is installed. The DB2 connections menu lists the discovered subsystems. You can also add connections to remote Db2 subsystems.

For more information, view the Quick Course Workbench for DB2 - Using the Connection Manager.

When you initially open the Connection Manager, a table of discovered connections is displayed. An icon indicates the type of connection (See the following table). Unless you are a superuser, you can see only your own connections, public connections, and the discovered connections. You can use the following procedure to add connections.
