This section contains guidelines for obtaining optimal performance from the DB2 Universal Database for use with Siebel Business Applications. These guidelines will be useful to a broad segment of customers. However, you should choose values for the parameters described in this guide that reflect conditions in your particular environment. For additional information, refer to IBM DB2 UDB technical documentation.

NOTE:  In this guide, the terms DB2 UDB or DB2 UDB for UNIX and Windows are often used to refer to the database platform IBM DB2 Universal Database for Linux, UNIX, and Windows. This platform may be referred to using other terms than these in some Siebel software contexts.

For additional relevant information, see Overview of Database Configuration.

When you use DB2 UDB, the DB2 UDB Application Development Client must be installed on the RDBMS machine where the Siebel Database is located. Verify that the Application Development Client is installed before proceeding. For more information, see the Upgrade Guide.
