in our scenario we would like to replicate data from HANA to DB2 (z/OS). Is this scenario also supported? Do you know which authorizations are necessary on DB2 side to replicate into DB2?

Kind Regards

Dear Ertugrul

Yes. But supported DB2 versions are 8,9 and 10.

While establishing a secondary database connection from an SAP LT Replication Server to an DB2 source system, you need the database user data (USERNAME and PASSWORD) with respective privileges to:

1. to establish a connection to the database.
2. to connect to a specific schema from the database.
3. to properly replicate and initially load for a specific table from a given schema, the database user that you have used for establishing connection to the database must have permission to:
– Select from the specific table
– Create a table in the given schema (in order to successfully create the logging table)
– Select from the logging table
– Delete the logging table
– Create synonyms and views for the specific table
– Delete the synonyms and the views

Kindly refer the note “1778975 – SAP LT Replication Server: Using DB2 as non-SAP source” for complete details.
