Export Data from SQL Server to DB2 through SSIS

Easily push SQL Server data to DB2 using the CData SSIS Tasks for DB2.

SQL Server databases are commonly used to store enterprise records. It is often necessary to move this data to other locations. The CData SSIS Task for DB2 allows you to easily transfer DB2 data. In this article you will export data from SQL Server to DB2.

Add Source and Destination Components

To get started, add a new ADO.NET Source control and a new DB2 Destination control to the data flow task.

Configure the ADO.NET Source

Follow the steps below to specify properties required to connect to the SQL Server instance.

  1. Open the ADO.NET Source and add a new connection. Enter your server and database information here.
  2. In the Data access mode menu, select "Table or view" and select the table or view to export into DB2.
  3. Close the ADO NET Source wizard and connect it to the destination component.

Create a New Connection Manager for DB2

Follow the steps below to set required connection properties in the Connection Manager.

  1. Create a new connection manager: In the Connection Manager window, right-click and then click New Connection. The Add SSIS Connection Manager dialog is displayed.
  2. Select CData DB2 Connection Manager in the menu.
  3. Configure the connection properties.

Configure the DB2 Destination

In the destination component Connection Manager, define mappings from the SQL Server source table into the DB2 destination table and the action you want to perform on the DB2 data. In this article, you will insert Orders entities to DB2.

  1. Double-click the DB2 destination to open the destination component editor.
  2. In the Connection Managers tab, select the connection manager previously created.
  3. In the Use a Table, menu, select Orders. In the Action menu, select Insert.
  4. On the Column Mappings tab, configure the mappings from the input columns to the destination columns.

Run the Project

You can now run the project. After the SSIS Task has finished executing, data from your SQL table will be exported to the chosen table.
