IBM DB2 to SQL Server Migration.

DBConvert/DBSync for DB2 and MS SQL Server is a trustworthy application supporting fast and accurate database conversions and synchronizations from IBM DB2 to MSSQL server/Windows Azure SQL databases.

Our software is able to connect to source and destination databases directly without any other additional software installed. Optionally, a target SQL Dump file may be generated if you lack direct access to the MS SQL server.

The application is also competent to migrate data between two MS SQL Servers as well as at copying DB2 to DB2 databases.

Supporting three types of synchronization, a trigger-based synchronization feature, and extending synch to Windows Azure SQL Databases to and from DB2 are all among the most recent, exciting modifications implemented into our DBSync/ DBConvert tools for MSSQL and DB2.

Our software can also be launched from the command line with your predefined parameters previously stored as a session.

Schedule any session to run at a time that is convenient for you or even in response to a system event.

Our user friendly interface can considerably reduce the time and effort spent for migrating databases. No SQL knowledge is required of you in order to work with our programs.

In general, the following 4 steps are required to perform conversion or synchronization

  3. Custoimzation and configuration.
  4. Execution.

Optionally save connection settings and configuration parameters into the session file to schedule the launching of sync or migration jobs regularly.

The screenshot below sums up general features available in DBConvert software solutions.

Command line mode

Previously saved sessions can be passed as parameters to Command-Line DBConvert Client. A session keeps source/ target DB connection settings and other specified options.

Example: C:\Program Files\DBConvert\mssql2db2Pro\mssql2db2Pro_Cons.exe /Session:"Session_Name"

NOTE: First, you have to run the software in GUI mode to create a session file with initial parameters.

Built-in scheduler.

Our applications come with a built-in scheduler to run database migration and sync jobs at specified times. Just set the scheduled date and time to execute job sessions automatically.

Requirements

  • If you connect to remote DB2 server that IBM Data Server Client should be installed on the machine where our tool is installed. You can download this client here: https://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21385217
  • Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 x86 Redistributable package
  • Necessary privileges to write into database on the target SQL Server (this requirement is optional as there is an option to overcome the restrictions using dump file)
  • Necessary privileges to write into empty database on the target DB2 server
