    Hi Pratts,

    DB2 for z/OS is a natively supported datasource for Optim Distributed, you should be able to connect to the database directly with Optim provided you have the proper client licensing (DB2 Connect, etc) and the user you are connecting with has the correct privileges.  See Chapter 1 of the Optim Installation and Configuration Guide for the necessary details.

    Hope this helps!
