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!

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.
