ZendFramework 2 PDO_IBM Driver Issue


Recommended Posts

Have a Zend Framework 2.4 connection factory that needs to establish a connection with an AS400 iSeries database. The connection has to be made this way bcuz there are multiple test environment and the factory needs to accommodate each.

The method is using Zend\Db\Adapter\Adapter and I pass that class an array of database connection parameters.

At issue: Zend\Db\Adapter doesn't accept the relational database (directory) name. I'm assuming that since the driver is PDO_IBM, there would be some expectation of a field for explicitly defining the name for the directory.

Here is the method:

public function conn($dbs) {
   $this->adapter = new Adapter(array(
       'driver' => $dbs['db']['driver'],
       'dbname' => $dbs['db']['dbname'],
       'username' => $dbs['db']['username'],
       'password' => $dbs['db']['password'],
       'hostname' => $dbs['db']['hostname'],
       'port' => $dbs['db']['port'],
   return $this->adapter;

Adapter is an alias for \Zend\Db\Adapter\Adapter
And here is the object that gets created.

["driver":protected]=> object(Zend\Db\Adapter\Driver\Pdo\Pdo)#224 (4){ 
  ["connection":protected]=>object(Zend\Db\Adapter\Driver\Pdo\Connection)#225 (6) { 
["driver":protected]=> *RECURSION* 
["profiler":protected]=> NULL 
["driverName":protected]=> string(3)"ibm" 
["connectionParameters":protected]=> array(6) { 
    ["driver"]=> string(7) "PDO_IBM" 
    ["dbname"]=> string(7) “<relational_database_name>” 
    ["username"]=> string(3) “<user_name" 
    ["password"]=> string(3) “<password>" 
    ["hostname"]=> string(9) "" 
    ["port"]=> string(3) "446" 

I can instantiate the connection object using and query the database fine with:

$conn = new \Zend\Db\Adapter\Adapter( ); // using Pdo=ibm:<relational_database_name>

And here is the error

Connect Error: SQLSTATE=42705, SQLConnect: -950 Relational database dbname=<rdn>;hos not in relational database directory.

Any thought (about this topic) are greatly appreciated.
