Performing a Compact Install

The steps to perform a Compact installation are the same as for performing a Typical installation, except for the installed product components. During a Compact installation, only the required components are installed, which greatly reduces the amount of disk space required for the product but also greatly reduces the functionality available. For example, the Graphical Tools aren't installed during a Compact installation.


Use Compact installation on systems where you use another application to interface to the database. For example, if you're planning to use Microsoft Access as the interface to DB2, you might not want to use the DB2 tools or online documents.

Now that you've successfully installed DB2, see Day 4 to get started with DB2 databases.
