Hello,

1. what are daily job functionalities of |DB2 DBA
This is quite site-specific. What your dba does routinely may be different than what others do. Also, there may be multiple dba positions in your organization and they may have different responsibilities.

2. Do we have any resources(text or video) to learn these.
Not that i'm aware of. Learning is usually a combination of OJT and edutacion classes.

3. All the stuff needed to be db2 dba.
Here may be some info you can use:

Unfortunate. . . Suggest you talk with your manager that you are interested in becoming a dba and see what is recommended.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.
