    Connection to DB2 z/OS

    govind chettiar


      Trying to establish connection from Tableau Windows 10 64 bit to IBM DB2 on zOS.  Per instructions on website I downloaded and installed v10.5fp3_ntx64_rtcl.exe which contains DB2 drivers. (I already have DB2 drivers which I used for connection from other clients like DBeaver and Websphere server)


      Connection times out with this error

      IPC_NamedPipe::Select(WaitForMultipleObjects): Timeout

      Unable to connect to the server "servename". Check that the server is running and that you have access privileges to the requested database.


      I am using the same connection information and credentials to successfully connect from DBeaver and IBM Data Studio and my IDE.


      Would appreciate any help

          Hello Govind,

          There have been some users reporting that using the 10.5 version of the IBM z/OS series driver has been experiencing some unexpected behavior. Most have seen success by using the 10.1 version of the IBM z/OS series driver for connecting to Tableau Desktop.



          I hope this helps!
