I am running Tableau Server on a Linux VM and I am connecting to a DB2. There was a IBM DB2 Driver already installed but my first try to connect to the DB2 failed. After that I installed the IBM ODBC Driver and know it works fine. But I want to ask if there is any possebility for using the IBM DB2 native driver? And if not, what is the reason?
Thanks for answering my question.
You may need to re-install the drivers. I got our drivers from our IBM DB2 dba team (pSERIES), so we connect natively (not through ODBC). It works fine in our Windows environment. I don't know why it wouldn't work for you.
