Roles and Permissions Used to Connect to DB2
The following roles and permissions are used to connect to DB2 and to install Siebel eBusiness Applications on a DB2 database:
SYSADM Privileges Used for Connecting to DB2
A DB2 subsystem is a prerequisite for installing Siebel eBusiness Applications. While installation does not require the use of an ID with SYSADM privileges, the creation of some underlying DB2 resources might. For detailed information on setting up a DB2 subsystem for Siebel eBusiness Applications, see Preparing for Implementation on the DB2 Host.
Functions that require SYSADM authority and that are necessary for installing Siebel eBusiness Applications on DB2 UDB for z/OS and OS/390 include:
- Allocating and accessing buffer pools
- Allocating and accessing storage groups
- Granting CREATEDBA or DBADM to the Siebel user ID used for the Siebel database installation
- User Defined Functions and stored procedures
DBADM/CREATEDBA Privileges Used for Connecting to DB2
Database Server installation requires access similar to that of DBADM; installers must be able to create Siebel objects and access the necessary utilities. Therefore, it is recommended that you grant CREATEDBA privileges to the primary or secondary authorization IDs that will be used to perform the database server installation.
