No shared library found for the database with ID DBID



We're trying to connect our BW system under WIN/MSSQL 2005 to an source system (RSA1) witch is an DATABASE DB4 on OS400.

when we check the database connection, it gave us the error

No shared library found for the database with ID DBID

in SM21 we've found

As well as the standard connection, an attempt was made to set up

another database connection, under the specified ID. The Shared Library

for this second database could not be found.

The Shared Library is usually found in the the Executable

directory (profile parameter DIR_LIBRARY) under the name dbs

<dbs>slib<os_ext>. <dbs> stands for the database type and <os_ext>

stands for the operating system-specific extension of the Shared


The database type is determined from the entry that corresponds to the

specified DB ID in the table DBDCON. Check whether the data in this

entry is correct.

someone can guide me were to found DBSL library for this time of external connection from Windows to DB4?

thanks in advance,

best regards,

Pedro Rodrigues
