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, ...?

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,

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.
