10.6. IBM DB2

Ports
The default port is 50000. To use another port in a database connection, append it to the Server setting, separated by a colon, in the login dialog, i.e.
servername:port or
serverIP:port

User IDs
User IDs are not simply database entities - they must also exist as server users e.g. a Windows User or Linux User.

Error Messages
Error messages reported by the database are not as user-friendly as those from other databases. Error numbers can be matched against the DB2 reference documentation found here (Reference --> SQL).
