Yupp in DB2, under Oracle schema.

Getting confused now (One word, many meanings).
Ok then catalogs are databases. That would be similar to MySQL.
There you have a system database/catalog with tables for user,hosts,etc...

But it has nothing to do with DB2s system catalog and to Oracle schema definition?

Am I with you??
