Set up database connectivity for an IBM® Db2 content store

This procedure describes how to set up database connectivity for a Db2®content store. You must perform this procedure on each computer where you install Content Manager.

You must use a type 4 Java™ Database Connectivity (JDBC) driver to connect to your content store.

The type 4 driver is considered an independent product. It does not require the Db2 client to be installed.


Copy the following files from DB2_installation\sqllib\java directory to the install_location\drivers directory:
  • The universal driver file, db2jcc4.jar
  • The license file:

    For Db2 on Linux®, UNIX, or Windows operating systems, use db2jcc_license_cu.jar.

    For Db2 on z/OS®, use db2jcc_license_cisuz.jar.

    If you are connecting to Db2 on z/OS, use the driver version from Linux, UNIX, or Windows version 9.1 fix pack 5 or version 9.5 fix pack 2.

    Tip: To check the driver version, run the following command:

    java -cp path\db2jcc4.jar -version
