RE: For Christmas, I want



fixed

Microsoft SQL Server, for instance, includes a DRDA client. But not a DRDA server.

It is very easy to set up DB2 (including DB2400) as a foreign database in SQL Server. But it is not so easy to set up SQL Server as a foreign database in DB2.

I thought the problem was the other way around. IBM provides the tools so that you can access DB2 from other platforms out of the box. This enables the 'pass-through' to DB2. But the other platforms don't provide the tools so that their data can be accessed from IBM i.

Subject: For Christmas, I want

For Christmas, I want the IBM Rochester system i team to do something significant to make the i a true server of choice.
I think I remember that 'server of choice' phrase from times past, but the gap I continue to see is the difficulty of querying foreign SQL DB from DB2 on i.

Some years ago, from MS Sql Server or Access I could "easily"
create 'pass-through' queries against DB2. But the reverse required a purchase.

Now, I am working through that same dilemma and wonder why
DB2 on i does not have native ability to exchange data with other ANSI compliant Db.

Out of the box, so to speak.
