Db2® is only required when you are installing IBM® Security Guardium® Key Lifecycle Manager traditional. You must consider whether to use an existing copy of Db2 Standard Edition, or use the Db2 version and fix pack that the IBM Security Guardium Key Lifecycle Manager installation program provides for distributed systems. An existing Db2 must be locally installed on the system and not on a network or shared drive.
Use IBM Security Guardium Key Lifecycle Manager to manage the Db2.
- You must use IBM Security Guardium Key Lifecycle Manager to manage the database. To avoid data synchronization problems, do not use tools that the database application might provide.
- For improved performance of Db2 on AIX® systems, ensure that you install and configure the I/O completion ports (IOCP) package that is described in the Db2 documentation (http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSEPGG_11.1.0/com.ibm.db2.luw.admin.perf.doc/doc/t0054518.html).
- If an existing copy of Db2 Standard Edition was installed as the root user at the correct version for the operating system, you can use the existing Db2 Standard Edition. IBM Security Guardium Key Lifecycle Manager installer does not detect the presence of Db2. You must specify the Db2 installation path.
