Just a simple post here, but you used to be able to fairly easily find the link for FTPing Fix Packs. Since I work from home, downloading and then uploading code is rather slow. If I can manage to go directly to the target server, I can save literally hours.
With the introduction of “Fix Central”, DB2 Fix Packs are no longer stored in the standard locations on ftp.software.ibm.com. So you now must first use your laptop/desktop/some computer with a browser to get a temporary FTP location, and then use wherever you want to FTP to (which can be a Linux/AIX server) to access that temporary location.

Ember is always curious and thrives on change. Working in IT provides a lot of that change, but after 17 years developing a top-level expertise on Db2 for mid-range servers and more than 7 years blogging about it, Ember is hungry for new challenges and looks to expand her skill set to the Data Engineering role for Data Science. With in-depth SQL and RDBMS knowledge, Ember shares both posts about her core skill set and her journey into Data Science.
Ember lives in Denver and work from home for XTIVIA, leading a team of Db2 DBAs.
