Binding the DB2 Connect Packages
To enable ODBC to point to DB2, bind the CLI/ODBC Support packages. DB2 Connect is installed with bnd files that bind to the host server. You can bind these packages using the default collection ID, or you can create a new collection ID for these packages. The Bind options are as listed:
- Use DB2 Configuration Assistant's BIND option to bind the packages. Highlight the dbalias, right-click, and choose the BIND option from the pop-up dialog.
- Issue explicit BIND commands. Refer to the relevant IBM documentation for further details on the BIND command.
Make sure that the authid has sufficient authority to bind these packages (BINDADD).
