When you run Domino with DB2NSF, there are two distinct interactions
that occur between Domino and DB2. They are:
- Domino uses DB2 as an alternate data store for Notes data.
- Specific sets of data are pushed from an NSF to DB2 in
the form of DB2 Access Views (DAVs).
- When working with data, you interact only with the Domino
server as a Notes user. In a Domino and DB2 configuration, all of the data
stored in DB2 is owned by Domino; therefore, you do not need a DB2 ID.
The client is unaware that the storage is in DB2 and not in an NSF file.
There is no need for users to have DB2 connectivity because DB2 connectivity
is handled by the Domino server.
When you run Domino
with the DB2 connector:
- The Lotus Connector for DB2 uses the DB2 Client Level
Interface (CLI) to perform actions between the Lotus Connector API and
- The LSXLC has to be present.
