Version 24.1.8910


You can use the DB2 connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from DB2 and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from DB2, you first must establish a connection to DB2. Follow these steps to connect DB2 to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the DB2 row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • Server - Enter the name of the server that runs DB2.

    • Port - Enter the port number connects to the server that hosts the DB2 database. The default port value is 50000.

    • Database - Enter the name of your DB2 database.

    • Auth Scheme - Select the authentication scheme. The default scheme is USRIDPWD. For this setting, you must specify these login credentials:

      • User - Enter the username that you use to authenticate to the DB2 account.

      • Password - Enter the password that you use to authenticate to the DB2 account.

    • Use SSL - Select whether you want to enable Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). The default value is False.

  6. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  7. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
