19. Resources

This section lists available additional resources for information on using DB2 UDB 8.2 for Linux:

19.1. Newsgroups

  • comp.databases.ibm-db2

    Covers the use of DB2 on all platforms, including Linux and UNIX, Windows, z/OS, iSeries, and pSeries. This forum is quite active.

  • ibm.software.db2.udb

    Similar to comp.databases.ibm-db2, but handles questions specific to the DB2 Universal Database product only.

  • ibm.software.db2.udb.beta

    Although this newsgroup was meant to serve users trying out the DB2 UDB V8.2 "Stinger" beta code, there are a lot of general questions about DB2 UDB on Linux that might help you. Now that the final release is available, activity on this forum has slowed down significantly.
