IBM DB2 LUW: Bin Directory and Utilities to Perform Import

SQLWays Wizard is able to execute the import process automatically. To perform it, user should provide target database credentials and Bin Directory.

Bin Directory is a path to a folder containing command line utility of the target database (like psql.exe, sqlcmd.exe, mysql.exe and others). With the help of this utility import process is performed.

So, during the import native utility connects to the target database using database credentials and tries to create all the objects that were converted by the tool.

It is extremely important to provide correct Bin Directory if we want to make an import. If a user doesn't have the appropriate utility on their local machine, it's necessary to install the DB client for a target database.

For IBM DB2 database you need to specify a path to the folder containing db2.exe native utility. By default this utility is located in the directory like: C:\Program Files\IBM\SQLLIB\BIN\. Otherwise, you can find it in the directory specified during the installation process of DB2 Data Server Client.

If there is no such utility on the machine where migration process will take place, it means that you need to install the DB2 Data Server Client. You can download it from the IBM official website.
