sample response file for IBM Data Server Driver Package.
You can have a maximum of 16 installed copies of the IBM Data Server Driver Package software. You must install each copy in a different directory. Installation of multiple copies is an advanced installation method that is not suggested for most users, due to the configuration requirements.
Silent installation on Windows platforms accepts a customized db2dsdriver configuration file. The DB2DSDRIVER_CFG_SOURCE_PATH keyword enables users to specify the full path of a db2dsdriver configuration file and copies it to the common application data path. It allows users to avoid the additional step of a manual overwrite of the configuration file post-installation. The keyword is introduced in the IBM Data Server Driver installation response file.
