Who Supports DB2 Connect, ODBC, JDBC, etc.?
Hi,

I'd like to take a very short survey about which area in your shop supports
middleware products such as DB2 Connect, ODBC/MDAC, JDBC, etc. It's been
an on-going issue here in my shop about where support for these products
should belong. Right now, nobody has assumed responsibility, so we just
keep our fingers crossed that everything works from one day to the next.

Any information that anybody is willing to offer would be greatly
appreciated.

As the DBA/Systems Programmer for DB2 I was initially responsible for
showing that I could communicate with DB2 via ODBC and DB2 Connect but then
the responsibility for installing on the client PC and/or server goes to the
PC group and I no longer "manage" the software at that point.

We (DBAs) installed and tested new releases and then provided the doc to
the pc people to mass distribute the CAE or Runtime client or fixpack. We
tested all fixpacks with all applications on a DBA test server then rolled
out to test and dev. The problem that occurs when just the pc people
support DB2 Connect is that they are not familiar with OS/390 and when doing
test connections or troubleshooting they aren't able to get far if it is not
on the Lan side. Just MHO. I preferred this setup because ultimately when
there was a problem, the DBA group would end up having to solve it anyway.
But I really didn't want to get into the distribution business, just test it
out verify it then document and pass off. HTH Phil

The Middleware here is manage by the DBA Staff. What we have done is the
Workstation image that gets deployed by the PC support group contains the
CAE + Fixpack. They do minimal support based of some documentation we
(DBA's ) have provided them, after that the problems get routed to the
DBA team. DB2 on OS/390 is were most of our applications live, so it is a
natural
progression to have the Distributed access and ODBC/JDBC support on our
team. We also have PeopleSoft/Tuxedo is also part of the middleware
infrastructure and the DBA staff manages every aspect of it too...

My current client has the DBA group support all of
these. The help desk distributes the software and
installs it on users PCs. But all server installs are
done by the DBA group. And all problem resolution.

Our DB2 Connect support is done by a special group not DBA or PC support staff. This group handles web applications on NT and UNIX.

In our shop all the client COMMS software lives in the PC/LAN group and all
the non-MVS
client software lives in the Client/Server group.

This is the same method we use, and for the same reasons.

Re: Who Supports DB2 Connect, ODBC, JDBC, etc.?
(in response to Glenn Mackey)
DB2 Connect, UDB PE, Work Group and EE installs on all platforms are done by
the DB2 systems personnel in the DBA group. The DB2 systems personnel are
also responsible for creating the response files for the Runtime silent
installs

When new workstations are deployed by the PC Services Group they are
deployed without any UDB functions. If the user requests UDB functions the
PC Services Group do a silent install of Version 7 Runtime client code.
PC Services also makes the DBA recommended updates to the ODBC.INI,
ODBCINST.INI & DB2CLI.INI files after the installs.

If our PC Support group can not resolve a user problem/issue on the
workstation, the issue is passed to the DBA group (acting as level II
support).
