DB2 LUW - AWS Database Migration Service


To install the IBM DB2 for LUW driver on the agent machine, do the following:

  • Install the appropriate version of IBM Data Server Client on the AWS DMS Agent machine:

    • For IBM DB2 for LUW 10.5, install client version 10.5.

    • For IBM DB2 for LUW 11.1 and 11.5, install client version 11.1.

  • Download and unzip the DB2 Server Software. For examle, v10.5fp9_linuxx64_server_t.tar.gz is the package for IBM DB2 for LUW version 10.5.

  • Install the DB2 client using the db2_install command. When prompted, choose to install CLIENT.

  • On the AWS DMS Agent machine, create a DB2 instance by running the following commands:

    adduser <db2_instance_name> /opt/ibm/db2/V10.5/instance/db2icrt <db2_instance_name>


    adduser db2inst1 /opt/ibm/db2/V10.5/instance/db2icrt db2inst1
  • Add the DB2 driver location to the Linux library path. To do this, add the following lines to the site_ arep_login.sh file:

    export DB2_HOME=<db2_dirver_path> export DB2INSTANCE=<db2_instance_name> export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$DB2_HOME/lib64:$DB2_HOME/lib64/gskit_db2


    export DB2_HOME=/opt/ibm/db2/V10.5 export DB2INSTANCE=db2inst1 export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$DB2_HOME/lib64:$DB2_HOME/lib64/gskit_db2
  • Make sure that the /etc/odbcinst.ini file contains an entry for IBM DB2 LUW, as shown in the following example:

    [IBM DB2 ODBC DRIVER] Driver = /opt/ibm/db2/V10.5/lib64/libdb2o.so fileusage=1 dontdlclose=1
  • Restart the AWS DMS Agent by running the following command in the /opt/amazon/aws-schema-conversion-tool-dms-agent/bin directory:

    ./aws-schema-conversion-tool-dms-agent restart
