    Sorry, but I have not tried to install the Linux product on AIX. It might be possible with the AIX Linux compatibility layer/toolkit.

    Just curious, what functions in the Linux product are you looking for on AIX?
    5250, ODBC, EDRS, RmtCmd, ...?

    We have AIX 5.3 with linux compatibility toolkit. We need ODBC drivers to connect an oracle installation to iSeries AS400 DB2

    I think you can give the IBM DB2 Connect product a try...

    thanks for your suggestion.
    As far as I can see from the product overview page, db2 connect is part of db2 udb product.
    What we need is an odbc driver to create a database link from oracle on aix to db2 on as400 via oracle's heterogenous connectivity.
    We have been able to create such a link in linux using unixodbc and iseries access for linux odbc driver.
    We have succesfully compiled unixodbc on aix 5.3 but now i'm looking for a db2/400 odbc driver on aix.
    Is an odbc driver included in db2 connect?

    Thanks for your sugggestions,

    David

    david,

    we also install unixodbc on aix to try accessing db2/400. in the db2 runtime client package for aix the obdc driver is included. Currently i have to test, but
    it seems to be usable.

    regards,

    daniel
