Exporting and importing a profile

If you did not use a configuration profile when you installed your Db2® product using the response file that was created by the response file generator, you can create a configuration file and import it to another workstation.


  1. To create a configuration profile, enter the db2cfexp command specifying the fully qualified name of the target export file. The resulting profile contains only configuration information associated with the current Db2 database instance.
  2. To import the configuration profile, you can:
    • Use the db2cfimp command
    • Use a response file by uncommenting the keyword <DB2_COPY_NAME>.CLIENT_IMPORT_PROFILE and specify the filename as the export file
