SAP Best Practices for Data Migration :repositories only on MS SQL Server ?



I'm implementing the "SAP Best Practices for Data Migration" (see

As part of the installation you have to install MS SQL Server Express Edition. The installation guide contains detailed steps to do this. All repositories for Data Services should be running on SQL Server, according to the installation guide.

The customer I'm working for now does not want to use SQL Server, but DB2, as company standard.

So I use DB2 for the local and profiler repositories.

I notice however that the web application http://localhost:8080/MigrationServices does not support DB2.The only database type you can select in the configuration area is MS SQL Server.

Is this a limitation, a by design ?
