Connect to iSeries from Linux

Post by joshdayberry » Fri Aug 12, 2011 5:56 pm

I have installed a db2 client and db2 connect. I built my php extension and successfully made a connect to the iseries. Is it possible to utilize system naming and library lists using db2 connect?

I am using the i5 toolkit by Easycom for connecting from Linux to IBM i. The ability to set the library lists and use the IBM i naming convention is already built in.

Yes it's possible to do both, see

From ibm_db2 1.5.1 on you can use the option 'i5_lib' and from 1.8.0 on 'i5_libl'.
