DB2 Version 9.7 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows

DB2 administration server (DAS) has been deprecated

The DB2® Administration Server (DAS) has been deprecated in Version 9.7 and might be removed in a future release.


Also, the DAS is not supported in DB2 pureScale® environments.

The DAS is only required for using the Control Center tools or performing remote administration. The Control Center tools have been deprecated.


Start using the IBM® Data Studio and IBM Optim™ tools in place of the Control Center tools. For details, see Control Center tools have been deprecated.

Start using software programs that use Secure Shell protocol (SSH) for remote administration. For example, you can configure the workbench in Data Studio to run SQL statements, utilities, and commands, or to browse and access files on remote servers using the Secure Shell (SSH) protocol.
