DB2 Plugin version

[ Edited ]

I planned to use SC with DB2 plugin for cloning purpose and I saw there are many activities on

What version I should use, the Snapcreator framework 4.0 with out of the box DB2 plugin or is there a way to integrate that latest from github?

I'm confused,  is that someone can enlighten me.

Hello François,

Please use the integrated DB2 plugin that comes with SnapCreator Framework 4.0.

Just by curiosity, if I need use git repo, how can I integrate perl script in SC.

Is there a documentation to explain that?


Re: DB2 Plugin version

If you are simply looking for SC to run a PERL script, it is easy.

example: PRE_APP_QUIESCE_CMD01=perl /scripts/

You may use sh, ksh, bash etc as well with CMD01, CMD02 syntax.

If you are asking about a custom APP that you put together as a perl module, then you can use the below example.


  1. scAgentX.X.X/plugins/YOURPLUGIN/
  2. scServerX.X.X/plugins/ YOURPLUGIN/

The plug-in will be loaded in Snap Creator with the APP_NAME parameter, in this case APP_NAME=YOURPLUGIN


You will need to restart the scAgent after placing the file.

(Example: for POSTRGRES, you download the plugin from repository and place them under corresponding locations as mentioned above).

Please let me know if you have questions.
