One of advantages using DB2 as database server is platform independent. We can install it on Windows as well as open source OS such as Linux.
After the installation process has done, we need to check whether its process is good or has any errors.
We can do check using command window with following syntax:
- db2level : displays DB2 product installed, program directory, used bits, code release, instance, fix pack level etc
- db2licm -l : lists all licensing and maximum resources information
- db2val : validates your installation. It checks instance and other settings are correct.
