Pinned topic DB2 Spatial Extender now included in DB2 Version 10.1

‏2012-05-03T13:27:35Z |
The DB2 Spatial Extender is now included in the DB2 Version 10.1 server install images.

In order to install Spatial Extender during the initial DB2 server install process, you need to select the "custom" install option and select Spatial Extender under the server components.

Spatial Extender can also be installed later by running the DB2 setup again, selecting "work with existing" and then select Spatial Extender under the server components.

Spatial Extender is available at no charge with all editions of the DB2 server from the no-charge DB2 Express-C through the DB2 Advanced Enterprise Server edition.

    Hope this helps,

    I tried to install DB2 express-C on Windows 7. I installed Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package and Microsoft .NET Framework 4 first, then installed DB2 with spatial extender checked. db2val is successful.

    However, after installation, I can't find binaries such as db2se anywhere?
    What are the major changes in V10?

    Thanks,

    Fusheng

      Hi Fusheng,

      We just discovered an unfortunate problem that the client component of Spatial Extender was omitted from the Express-C install images.

      At this point, the best solution is to download the matching DB2 10.1 server trial at
      http://www-01.ibm.com/software/data/db2/linux-unix-windows/download.html

      Go through the install process to update an existing installation, select custom install, de-select all options except for the client for Spatial Extender.

      This problem is specific to the DB2 Express-C edition.
