I would prefer the following set of subjects.

1) DB2 for SQL Server DBAs
2) DB2 for Oracle DBAs
3) DB2 for Experienced DBAs
4) DB2 for Windows
Kind Regards

Great! Thanks Anil. This is very helpful. Since you're one of the first 5 to respond, you get to choose a book. Which would you like?

I think that it would be really great to have some best practices around using things db2look, db2move, import, export, etc. Moving data between tables on different servers has always given me problems, and hearing how the experts do it would be great.

How about similarities between DB2 LUW and DB2 for z/OS? We always talk about the differences. However, the latest releases are starting to look very similar, especially the SQL.

DB2 Express-C with DB2 Spatial Extender

I would prefer something about "Best practices about Storage"
- how many LUN, 1GB for each LUN or more...
- how can we stripe in a DS8x storage
- DS4x vs. DS8x

I know the written best practices, but I need more knowing how we can use storage with DB2.
- fixpack update
- Upgrade to a higher version 9.5 to 9.7

Help a guy get started. I need to move away from Microsoft. Let's make that happen.
1) DB2 for SQL Server DBAs

You really have quick on the mark to be one of the first five comments here.
As a professional DBA contractor I believe we need more examples on how to migrate from other databases to DB2.
Without question the other competitors have a strong hold the database market and what I hear all the time is the cost of licenses for these databases.
IBM's DB2 in my opinion could be biggest shake up in database market.

Great suggestion, Benjamin! So tell me ... which book would you prefer?

13 LadyVee commented Permalink

Thanks Anil, Benjamin, Willie, Angelo, Tim, Joachim, Jordan and Vibhaw for your suggestions! These are all really good ideas! I will review the topics and let you know which topic we will cover in the upcoming virtual session. Perhaps we will do a series of topics. Hmmm ... something to think about. :-) Stay tuned!

Oh, by the way ... congratulations to Anil, Benjamin, Willie, Angelo and Tim! You are eligible to receive a free book of your choice. So tell me ... which would you prefer?

Hey Erik! Yes, you have to move quickly to take advantage of free offers. :-)

Live examples of how to migrate from other databases to DB would be very beneficial to the community. Thanks for your feedback.

I think that a great issue is the diferences about Oracle structure and DB2-LUW. We can talk about the tools of DB2-LUW (db2pd, db2mtrk, db2move, db2look...), HADR, LBAC and Workload Manager (WLM).

Alexandre Torres.
