Installing the Db2 Operator

Db2 11.5.5 and later for Red Hat® OpenShift® are Operator-enabled installations, allowing you more control over your deployment..

The Db2 Operator is acquired from either the IBM Operator Catalog or the Red Hat Marketplace. The IBM Operator catalog is accessible through your OpenShift UI console, while the Red Hat Marketplace is a web site.

If your target Db2 cluster is disconnected from the internet (air-gapped), you can use the IBM Cloud Pak CLI (cloudctl) command-line utility to install and configure the Db2 Operator. You can run the utility from a bastion host or from a suitably equipped portable device.
