Documents/Information on ADABAS in Mainframe

Hi All,

I am going to work as ADABAS DBA. Could you please help me by providing the documents or information related to ADABAS DBA.

I am having 18 years of experience on Mainframe technologies, worked as DB2 DBA, application development & support task.

Advance thanks for your help & support


There are two ways to reach the on-line documentation.

  1. If you are a licensed user, you will have credentials to access the Empower portal at

  2. You can update your Tech Community profile to include the Documentation Area of Interest. That procedure is found in the Tech Community Access to Documentation FAQs: Community+Access+to+Documentation+FAQs
    Refer to the second bullet there.


  • Concept and Facilities
  • DBA Tasks
  • Operations

And then spend a lot of time in DBA Reference Summary (Quick Reference).

Thanks for your swift response.
