Binding the DB2 Connect 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. See the discussion on security. The BIND command is only issued once per subsystem, and version/IBM Fix Pack.
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 IBM documentation for further details on the BIND command.
The BIND command is issued at the time of installation and when subsequent IBM Fix Packs are applied. As indicated earlier, you will BIND once per subsystem. Failure to BIND will result in SQL errors or authorization errors when a client without BINDADD authority attempts to connect and the DB2 software attempts to perform an autobind. Please refer to the IBM documentation for more information on the BIND command.
