Changing the DB2 Home Directory

The DB2 Home directory is the location where the DB2 application resides. When an instance is discovered, the SnapProtect software automatically assigns the path of the Home directory to the instance. If you change the directory on the DB2 database server, you can modify the path of the Home directory for an instance.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Client Computers > client > DB2.
  2. Right-click the instance, and then click Properties.

    The Instance Properties dialog box appears.

  3. On the General tab, in the HOME box, type the path to the DB2 Home directory.
  4. Click OK.
