Installation
To simplify installations and upgrades, IBM created an "EZ-Install" package. Consider using EZ-Install versus the traditional way of installing IBM i licensed products (LPPs) and then PTF Groups. EZ-Install is not only easier but the SETUP command lays down the product with the latest PTF Group already applied, and much more to enable a FAST START for users.
EZ-Install SETUP command does the following:
  • Runs a pre-req checker to ensure you have all the prerequisites.
  • Installs the product and all feature options and PTF Group
  • Preserves existing reports and metadata from older versions
  • Assigns a Db2 Web Query Administrator (a prompt on the SETUP command)
  • Restores sample databases referenced by Tutorials and Video demonstrations
  • Installs several tools and utilities, such as the Query400 Discovery Tool and Date Dimension Table Utilities
  • Starts Db2 Web Query!
License keys are not required on a new installation or an upgrade immediately as you can run the product under a 70-day trial period. On day 71, you WILL need license keys to continue to use what you are licensed to.
How to request EZ-Install Package
You can request the EZ-Install package, which includes installation guide and tutorials by sending an email to QU2@us.ibm.com. If you are an IBM Business Partner, be sure to provide to the tutorials to your client so they can learn about what you installed for them!
Learn more about EZ-Install at http://ibm.biz/db2wqezinstall-info.
If you have a previous version 2 installation, then EZ-Install overlays that.
