Host Integration Server 2000 includes a utility program (NewSNADS.exe) that enables users to easily create or modify data links. This tool is installed in the System folder below the subdirectory where Microsoft Host Integration Server 2000 is installed. This tool is installed in the following default location:
C:\Program Files\Host Integration Server\system\NewSnaDS.exe
A shortcut for this tool is added to the Programs menu under the Host Integration Server\Data Integration folder with a name of OLE DB Data Sources. This shortcut is created when Microsoft Host Integration Server 2000 or the Host Integration Client 2000 is first installed and support for data access is selected.
A shortcut entitled the OLE DB Data Source Browser is also added to the Programs menu in the Host Integration Server\Data Integration folder. This shortcut opens Windows Explorer in the default directory where UDL files are stored:
C:\Programs Files\Common Files\System\Ole DB\data links
To create a new UDL file, run the
NewSnaDS tool. Once a UDL file has been created using the
NewSnaDS tool, the file can be changed to a more appropriate name and copied to other computers for use with the OLE DB Provider for DB2.
