5. Installing DB2 Version 8.2 on OpenSuse 10.0
Before proceeding, please ensure that you have read
Section 3 and Section 4.
Note that IBM officially supports this distribution for DB2 UDB V8.2 only
for application development or client purposes.
Installing with the DB2 Express Discovery Disc, the installation went smoothly.
5.2. Post-installation notes
If you have enabled your firewall (the iptables service), and you want to enable external connectivity to your DB2 server, you must open up ports 553 and db2 get dbm cfg | grep SVCENAME in your firewall.
