help needed for installing DB2 on AIX

P: n/a
Hi all,
I downloaded DB2 enterprise edition from partnerworld on ibm.com and
unzipped and untarred it and copied it to CD and tried installing on AIX
using SMIT.
I am getting errors while installing DB2. they seems like related to java or
dependent on java. Is there anyone who has faced some problem installing
DB2? Do i have to install Java from expansion pack or bonus pack before
installing DB2

regards,
Jagdip

At a guess (without more details it's difficult to tell) you're running
into difficulty running the graphical installer on V8, which is a Java
application ?

I've not had the "privilege" of installing V8 on AIX yet, so this advice
may not be 100% relevant on that environment. On Linux you can "avoid"
the graphical installer, as long as you are happy with a default install,
by using the command "db2install" instead of "db2setup".

Did you read the "Getting Started" manual for this version ? It gives a
lot of information about installation, including prerequisites and full
instructions.

You can also do a response file install if you haven't got the right JDK
on AIX for the install.

If you're on v8, search on this topic
"Starting the DB2 Setup wizard for a DB2 server installation (UNIX)"
