DB2 Connect EE, ASE, or UE can reside either on the same machine as the Siebel Server or on common connection gateway machines. (Do not confuse the concept of a gateway machine with the Siebel Gateway Name Server.) DB2 Connect EE, ASE or UE broker the connections to DB2 for multiple database clients. See Table 6 for DB2 Connect configurations.
NOTE: If you deploy DB2 Connect EE, ASE or UE with Siebel Developer Web Client, you must also install a DB2 Connect run-time component on your Siebel Developer Web Client machine. The DB2 Runtime must be installed on the Siebel Server if it does not coexist with DB2 Connect.
Siebel Servers and Siebel Developer Web Clients communicate with DB2 Connect through TCP/IP. (DB2 Connect also supports communication through SNA, but SNA currently does not support connection pooling. For this reason, it is recommended that you use TCP/IP.) For instructions on installing TCP/IP, refer to the vendor documentation on the IBM Web site.
