DB2 Connect is required if you are going to have clients (websphere
server on NT or ...) connect to the 400's DB2 database.  Connect is
different from ops nav - Ops nav is 400 specific - DB2 will provide
similar (not the same UI unfortunately) functionality as far as the
support of the DB is concerned.  We use Connect as well as DB2 on NT
quite a bit and there are something I like a lot about it, but there are
some things that they did better on the 400, but some of that may be we
know it better so that makes it better  ;-).

I wish there was a better way to do some of the connections - sometimes
the added complexity seems a bit much.  But then this is a new component
world!

Subject: DB2 Connect

  What is DB2 Connect?  What functionality does it add over Ops Nav?  Is
it
a nicety or a required piece in some instances?  How does Websphere play
w/
DB2 Connect (if at all)?  At 450MB it's a hefty install.

  TIA.
