Thanks for that!!

But I still cannot figureout where is the datasource is being created ..

Can someone give some pointers to the following error I get when launching the admin console.

[05.01.28 17:53:13:469 CST] 2aa5675b DBMgr F SMTL0026E: Failure to create a data source: COM.ibm.db2.jdbc.DB2Exception: [IBM][CLI Driver] SQL1031N The database directory cannot be found on the indicated file system. SQLSTATE=58031

Hi Me Fdo
Well let me guess what ur trying to do. ur trying to create datasource on WAS for DB2 database. Now i am sure that ur db2 database is not on the m/c where WAS is installed. If this is so just check u have the proper jar in the classpath.
Now lets say if i had oracle as Database, classes12.jar shd be there in the classpath. So for db2 there must be a jar which is needed in the classpath. Once that is done i am sure ur problem will be solved.
Even if u have Database on same m/c u will face same problem.

I have both WAS5.0 and WAS4.0 installed with DB2 8 in the same machine.

I believe DB2 equivalent to classes12.jar is db2jcc.jar

I have all the below in my class path(added JDBC 2.0 driver too)

C:\Program Files\JavaSoft\JRE\1.3\lib\ext\jdbc2_0-stdext.jar

Here's what I did to install WAS4.0
1) Installed DB2 8.0
2) installed WAS
3) Launch the Admin console
4) Above error reported in WAS logs

Can you please let me know what should be there in the classpath related WAS?

Here's all i have in my classpath from the installer::

C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere Studio\bin\eglbatchgen.jar

Hi all

Resolutin for the problem I described above is below

The reason for my prior error was DBCreate script in WAS-HOME/bin did not run due to insufficient access rights.

I ran the DBCreate script manually by login db2admin id. All set!!
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
