Thread: DB2 Connect - application name

    DB2 Connect - application name


    I am connecting to DB2 via ADO and I am trying to pass in the application
    name as part of the connection string (in Microsoft and Sybase, you do this
    with "APP=MyAppName"). This does not appear to work with with DB2. I have
    checked IBM's DB2 Connect website and did not see anything.

    Does anyone happen to know what, if any, argument I can use to accomplish
    this?

    Re: DB2 Connect - application name

    It works in MS & Sybase servers because they came from the same code base.
    I would recomend that you download a trial copy of Embarcadero DBArtisan
    (make sure you get the version that supports DB2), connect from there and
    watch incoming data on DB2's end. I know - it is a PITA.

    The reason, you should do it with DBArtisan is because, it shows which app
    is connected, so apparently it does receive the APP info.
