    I am assuming this is DB2 LUW V7.2.

    When we went from DB2 V7 -> DB2 V8, we changed the protocol that our drivers use to communicate to the database, and V8 clients were the last clients that supported the protocol that DB2 LUW V7 servers used. All client releases after that - V9.1, V9.5, V9.7 and V10.1 all use the new protocol, and thus are not compatible with V7 servers.

    The V8 clients are no longer in service (same for V9.1 clients), thus there is nothing currently available that supports a LUW V7 database server.
