DB2 9 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows Quickstart for Experienced Relational DBAs


This is the classroom version of Instructor-led online course 3L482

This course teaches you to perform, basic and advanced, database administrative tasks using DB2 9 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows. These tasks include creating and populating databases and implementing a logical design to support recovery requirements. The access strategies selected by the DB2 Optimizer will be examined using the DB2 Explain tools. Various diagnostic methods will be presented, including using the db2diag.log file messages to direct your investigation of problems, as well as using the commands db2pd, INSPECT, and db2support and DB2 traces. Learn how to implement automatic archival for database logs and how to plan a redirected database restore to relocate either selected table spaces or an entire database. This course provides a quick start to DB2 database administration skills for experienced relational Database Administrators (DBA).

You will get practical experience in the basic and advanced database administrative tasks of a wide variety of DB2 LUW utilities and functions by performing a series of lab exercises on a Linux platform. The exercises build skills that can be applied to DB2 database servers on any Linux, UNIX or Windows environment.

This is an intermediate course for experienced DBAs and technical individuals, with experience on other relational database platforms, who plan, implement, and maintain DB2 9 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows databases.

This course is appropriate for those using DB2 in a z/Linux environment.


Before taking this course you should be able to:

  • Perform basic database administration tasks on a relational database system  
  • Use basic OS functions such as utilities, file permissions, hierarchical file system, commands, and editor  
  • State the functions of the Structured Query Language (SQL) and be able to construct DDL, DML, and authorization statements 
  • Discuss basic relational database concepts and objects such as tables, indexes, views, and joins 

These skills can be developed by taking:

OS Training:

  • AIX 5L Basics  
  • Linux Basics and Administration
