Unable to connect to DB2 on z/OS

CA Identity Suite


We are trying to connect to DB2 on ZOS from Identity Manager. We have C++ connector server on a windows server and we have followed the steps in "Set Up License Files for the DB2 for z/OS Connector" from the documentation. But it still fails. Attaching the screenshot and the logs.


Release : 14.3

Component : IdentityMinder(Identity Manager)


We need DB2 connect client software to be installed on the C++ connector server machine so that DB2 connector can use the "IBM Data Server Driver for ODBC and CLI" to connect to DB2 endpoint.

**Please note "IBM Data Server Driver for ODBC and CLI" is included in the DB2 connect client software.

You can follow next steps:

1. Download client from https://epwt-www.mybluemix.net/software/support/trial/cst/programwebsite.wss?siteId=848&h=null&p=null (Requires login created)

2. Restart C++ server machine after successful installation

3. Create a DB2 endpoint from Provisioning Manager.
