This activity takes you through the steps for connecting to the Meeting Server, Gateway, or Advanced Server database you created.
Before you begin
AIX®, Linux®, Solaris, Windows®:
Ensure that IBM
® has been installed and that you have created the Sametime
® Meeting Server, Gateway, or Sametime
Ensure that you have created the required database schemas and tables.
In the Connect to DB2 Databases
portlet, verify that the Sametime System Console database you created earlier is already displayed in the list of databases.
About this task
Follow these steps to connect to the Meeting Server, Gateway, or Advanced Server database. You must do this before you can install the Meeting Server or the Advanced Server using the Sametime
System Console. If you installed the server without using the System Console (as is the case with the Sametime
Meeting Server on IBM
i and Sametime
Gateway on any platform), do this step before registering the server with the System Console.

- DB2 Configuration Guided Activity.
Click Add to begin the guided activity that will connect your server to the DB2 database. If a connection already exists, you can optionally edit or delete it.
- Add a new database.
- In the Connect to DB2 Databases portlet, click Add.
If you want to edit or delete a database instead, then select one, and click the appropriate button.
- Enter the fully qualified host name of the DB2 server in the Host name field.
Do not enter an IP address or a short host name.
- The Port field shows the default port of 50000. Accept the default unless you specified a different port during DB2 installation or your server is using a different port.
Linux: Check the /etc/services file on the DB2 server to verify the port number being used.
- In the Database name, field, enter the name of the database you want to connect to.
- In the Application user ID field, supply the DB2 application's administrative user name that you created when you installed DB2, such as db2admin. This user has database administration authority and you will use this user ID and password whenever you work with DB2 databases for Sametime. On IBM i, this is the user profile you specified as the owner of the Meeting Server database schemas in your copy of the stms.default.response.properties file or the user profile you logged in with when you created the Gateway database schemas
- In the Application password field, enter the password for the DB2 administrative user ID.
- (Meeting Server or Gateway databases) If you are connecting to a database on an IBM i server, click Hosted on IBM i.
- Click Finish.
