I am hoping someone will have a solution for my problem.

I am having a performance issue while inserting data from SQL Server to DB2 using SSIS package. To give an idea a table with only 3 columns with 50K rows is taking around 50+minutes to insert the data in DB2 Table.

Here are the Details of my SSIS package/Environment:
SQL Server 2005 SP4 (Standard Edition) developed the package using BIDS on a machine with Standard Edition. This package will run on production server with Enterprise edition installed.

I am using IBM OLEDB Provider for Db2 to connect to DB2 database(IBMDADB2.Db2Copy is the provider name in the connection string).

For the Data flow destination. I am using OLEDB Destination task.

We are researching Network traffic issue as I am typing this. Since our SQL Server is in one city and our DB2 server is in another city. But I highly doubt if thats the problem because I am not having this kind of performance issue when we get data from DB2 server and insert into SQL Server. Everything works fine in that case even though the servers are in 2 different locations.

After reading multiple posts some one had suggested that MS OLEDB Db2 provider is faster than IBM OLEDB Db2 provider. So I downloaded the Microsoft OLEDB Db2 provider version 3.0 from the below link.

But I had issue with the installation. Apparently its only supported for Developer and Enterprise edition sql server. My machine is standard edition. Its not practical to directly install this on our staging or production server which has Enterprise edition sql server installed.

Has any one come across similar issue and have found a solution.

Does DB2 have some sort of bulk insert functionality?
