System requirements: Software requirements for IBM DB2 Content Manager Enterprise Edition Version 8.4.2

Product Documentation


Abstract

This page describes the minimum system requirements for the software to operate IBM® DB2® Content Manager Enterprise Edition V8.4.2.

Important:
Because other products frequently ship fixes, updates, and new releases, testing every configuration is not possible. In general, you can install and run with updates to supported products if those updates are forward compatible. For detailed examples about what is supported, see the IBM Content Manager prerequisite support policy at http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27018047.

For DB2 Content Manager Enterprise Edition V8.4.2 hardware requirements, see the Related Information link at the bottom of this document.

Requirements for DB2 Content Manager for z/OS® V8.4.2 are listed separately. See the Related information link at the bottom of this document.

Connection to a remote database

The following table specifies the required software from any of the following components to a remote database (if the database is on a different machine):

  • Client for Windows

The following components no longer require the DB2 Run-Time Client when configured to use the JDBC driver in Type 4 mode. However, the Run-Time Client is required when the JDBC driver is run in type 2 mode. For more details on configuring for type 4, see IBM DB2 driver for JDBC and SQLJ support in DB2 Content Manager Version 8.4. The table below specifies the required software when these components are run using JDBC type 2 mode.

  • Resource manager application
  • Information Integrator for Content

If you support LDAP user authentication:
  • You must install the IDS SDK client. DB2 Content Manager V8.4.2 supports IDS SDK V6.0, V6.1, and V6.2 for all platforms.
  • If you plan to use a 64-bit library server, DB2 Content Manager V8.4.2 requires IDS SDK V6.1.
  • Linux users using Oracle: you must manually install Tivoli Directory Server V6.1 client and its 32-bit library. See instructions.

* MQ/JMS 64-bit libraries for a 64-bit JVM

MQ_JAVA_LIB_PATH is the environment variable for the MQ Java library path. On AIX or Solaris, use either the 32-bit libraries or the 64-bit libraries. Use the 64-bit libraries only if you are running your application in a 64-bit Java virtual machine (JVM) on a 64-bit platform. Otherwise, use the 32-bit libraries.

AIX:
/usr/mqm/java/lib (32-bit libraries)
/usr/mqm/java/lib64 (64-bit libraries)

Solaris:
/opt/mqm/java/lib (32-bit libraries)
/opt/mqm/java/lib64 (64-bit libraries)
