The IBM® Secure Shell (SSH) Server for Windows provides a secure platform to run commands from remote
machines. If you chose not to install the IBM SSH Server for
Windows component while installing a Db2 server, you can
install this component manually. You require this component to use Optim™ tools.
Starting in Version 11.5 Mod Pack 4, the IBM® Db2 Secure Shell Server For
Windows is discontinued. For instructions on how to install OpenSSH for Windows, see Installing SFTP/SSH Server on Windows using OpenSSH

support some IBM Data Server Manager
administrative requests (such as instance management requests, RunSQL CLP option commands,
instance/database administration requests, and job manager requests). If your database is
administered through DSM, please assure that DSM Fix Pack v184.108.40.206 or later is installed before
proceeding to deploy and use the Microsoft Windows SSH on your database server, Otherwise, DSM
administrative functions will receive the error, "Failed to connect to SSH server with username
administrator." For more information, see Removal of IBM
