Configuring Unicode for DB2® databases

You must configure each database used in the IBM® Connections deployment for Unicode. Configuration for Unicode must be set before Connections installation because it cannot be set after installation.


You must perform the following steps on each DB2® instance in the deployment:
  1. Stop any WebSphere® server connected to the DB2® database you are configuring.
  2. Log in to the DB2® server as the DB2® instance owner.
  3. Open the DB2® command window.
  4. Run the following commands in sequence:
    db2set DB2CODEPAGE=1208
    db2stop force
  5. Run the following commands to check the new configuration:
    This should return DB2CODEPAGE=1208. If not, it is not configured correctly and you should try Step 4 again.
