MySQL to IBM DB2 Migration.

Simplify the process of data migration and sync from MySQL to IBM DB2 with DBConvert/ DBSync software. Applications establish direct connections to source and destination databases to minimize time and maximize performance. Alternatively Dump file or PHP script may be used to overcome server limitations.

Depending on your choice, the whole source database may be transferred or you can specify separate tables, fields, indexes, primary keys and constraints for conversion or synchronization.

Data types are converted automatically or you can customize type mapping alternatively if requested. The program runs in both GUI and command line modes so it’s possible to automate the conversion process. Moreover, if you want to accomplish database transfers periodically based on a schedule, such functionality is also supported.

DBSync for MySQL and DB2 supports update, drop, and insert synchronization types to keep databases fresh with actual data.

To perform the database conversion or synchronization from MySQL/ MariaDB to IBM DB2 minimum database knowledge is required. Just follow several simple steps to execute migration job quickly and efficiently.

GUI Application.

Use DBConvert / DBSync software GUI application to configure parameters for starting a migration process.

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

  1. Choose Source Database.
  2. Choose Destination Database.
  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\mysql2db2Pro\mysql2db2Pro_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 empty database on the target DB2 server
  • Necessary privileges to write into database on the target MySQL server (this requirement is optional as there is an option to overcome the restrictions using dump file or PHP Script)
