Overview

DB2Migrator is an intuitive and effective assistant for DB2 to SQL Server data migration. The tool transfers data from DB2 tables to existing SQL Server tables in a few easy steps. It is simple in use and advantageous in work.

Attention

The free trial version of DB2Migrator can be used for evaluation purposes for two days after the downloading. It migrates 10% of rows per each table, but not less than 100 rows. To enjoy full functionality of this product for unlimited period of time, you must buy a license.

How to use the tool

Execute the DB2MigratorSetup.msi file after it has been downloaded. During the installation, you should specify the folder for the program files and choose features to be installed. If you check “Launch DB2Migrator when setup exits” during the installation, the DB2Migrator wizard will be opened. Now you can start the migration!

Features

An wizard-like that allows the user to restart the migration from any step.

The tool uses the bulk copy mechanism to load data from DB2 tables to SQL Server. This approach allows it to achieve the maximum possible insertion speed.

By creating a single migration task, you can migrate many tables at once. The target SQL Server database and schema can be specified only once for the whole task.

Current migration tasks can be saved in a file and restored later. Thus, you don't need to specify all parameters from scratch when you are repeating the migration for a similar set of tables on the same servers.

You can edit the SELECT statement which reads the source data. This allows fixing many common data migration problems like incompatibilities in data types. Besides, it makes possible to perform a partial data migration, when you need to move only a definite range of records.

DB2Migrator has a Column Mapping feature, which allows establishing a custom correspondence between DB2 and SQL Server columns if necessary. This can occur, for example, when a DB2 column name happens to be a SQL Server keyword.

  • Select the source data provider

    Using DB2Migrator, on the very first step, you need to select the source IBM DB2 data provider.

  • Connect to the source database

    Then you need to provide the connection credentials so that DB2Migrator can connect to the source IBM DB2 database.

  • Connect to the target database

    After providing the source database connection credentials, you need to specify the connection credentials for the target SQL Server database.

  • Specify the schema mappings

    After connecting both to the source and target databases, you need to specify the schema mappings between the source and target objects.

  • Select the source tables

    Then specify the source tables, which you want to copy from the source IBM DB2 database to the target SQL Server database.

  • Save and execute

    Finally, you can opt for executing the operation immediately or simply saving the package to run it later.
