IBM Connections 6.0 Deployment: Installing ksh93 Korn shell for DB2

I began my install of Connections 6.0 this week and decided to build it on Linux this time after previously installing Connections deployments on Windows. One of the immediate challenges that tripped me up is the DB2
After some digging, I determined that this just means the 1993 revision of ksh, an update from the 1988 revision. You can install any version of ksh and then check to see which version it is by using this command:
$ strings /bin/ksh | grep Version
@(#)$Id: Version AJM 93u+ 2012-08-01 $
In this case I have the correct version, as denoted by the 93 in the version string. My guess is that any ksh package should be version 93 (24 years seems like a reasonable time to update), but if you are like me you'll want positive verification that you have the right package.
