Could you please share if there is any difference in using Datamaker for connecting to DB2 on ZOS vs DB2 on iSeries. Is it the same connection/driver and or DataSource License ?
You can find information on the differences in support between DB2 z/OS and iSeries here: Supported Data Sources - CA Test Data Manager - 4.2 - CA Technologies Documentation
There are some differences in terms of drivers:
Here is some documentation on creating profiles: Connect to Test Data Source and Target Databases - CA Test Data Manager - 4.2 - CA Technologies Documentation
Thanks for the quick response.
So if we need Datamaker to connect to both DB2 on iSeries and on ZOS, we need to get a separate datasource license for each. In the absence of this license, we will not be able to connect to these data sources and generate/retrieve data.
Please let me know if this understanding is correct.
I am not familiar with how the data source license/contracts work, but your CA Account Manager will be able to tell you. I can tell you that it is all technically one TDM license.
If they are two separate DB2 instances, you would need two separate DB2 profiles in Datamaker.
Ok, great..Thanks Taylor!
