DB2 for z/OS worksheet: Transfer your database

This worksheet highlights the fields and properties that you see in the Configuration Wizard when you use the database transfer option.

Typical fields

When you use the database transfer option, you answer questions about your environment. Some fields are required. Other fields are required or removed based on your selections for environment conditions.

The following table lists the typical fields that display when you select the database transfer option. To see additional fields that apply to an advanced configuration, click Advanced.

Depending on the conditions that you select, values that you enter for some typical fields might apply across domains. Rather than entering a value multiple times, this value is copied to fields in the Advanced view and applied across the database domains.

Table 1. Fields that display in the Configuration Wizard

You might not see all of the fields listed in this table. Use the Conditions column in this table to find out what selections are required to see the fields. If you do not see conditions listed for a field, the field always appears. A selection might result in multiple fields displaying in the wizard. For this type of selection, a selection listed in the Conditions column spans multiple field label rows.

These fields display in the typical view.
