To create a DB2 connection

  1. From the HCO for SQL Server interface, click Manage Connections.
  2. On the Connections List tab, select a Connection Type (System or User) for this DB2 connection.
  3. Click New DB2 Connection.
  4. Complete all fields on the form.
  5. If you want HCOSS to remember your ADO.NET password, check Allow Saving ADO.NET Connection Password. Otherwise, the system prompts you for a password each time you connect from other HCOSS tools.
  6. Click Test.
  7. When the connection tests successfully, click OK to clear the message; then click Save.

    The new connection appears on the Connections List located on the Connections List tab.
