Ensuring that the database is started on Windows

To ensure an operational WebSphere Commerce environment, the associated DB2 database can be activated through Windows services.


  • DB2 To ensure that DB2 is started on Windows:
    1. Open the Windows Services panel.
    2. Ensure that all services that start with "DB2" and have a Startup type value of Automatic are running.
      If any of these automatic services are not started, right-click the service name and select Start from the pop-up window.
      Note: DB2 services that have a Startup type value of Manual, are optional. Start the services as needed. For example, the following services have a Startup type value of Manual:
      • DB2 Governor
      • DB2 License Server
  • Oracle To ensure that Oracle is started on Windows, follow the instructions in the Oracle documentation.
