Hi ! I am trying to make Websphere 3.5 run on a Solaris 2.8 unix server. I have managed to hava it running under Windows NT without any problem. But it doesn't seem so obvious under Unix. When I try to run adminserver.sh, I get the same problem as some people has had (as I can see in the newsgroup) : FATAL could not load database driver java.lang.ClassNotFoundException:jdbc.idbDriver and many error lines after it. For my web applications, I won't need any database and JDBC, so I'm angry being trapped by a jdbc question. Some people in the news tell that it's because of the db2java.zip that isn't found. I had this file in Windows NT, but don't have it under Unix. Do I have to run createdb2.sh ? What is it used for ? Help me please !

I am not very sure, but I think the IDBDriver is used to access the Internal DB that comes with Websphere for storing its Configuration etc. If you are getting this error, I think things have not been installed properly.
