Installation of IBM DB2 Enterprise server edition on Linux

P: n/a
Hai,
I am trying to install IBM DB2 8.1 on Red Hat linux 8.0. My
machine is Intel XEON 64bit. The installation went well except for the
creation of tools catalog. When I tried to install the tools catalog
as a post installation task I get some java error.
[db2inst1@tokyo ~]$ db2 CREATE TOOLS CATALOG SYSTOOLS USE EXISTING
DATABASE TOOLSDB FORCE SQL22209N The DB2 Administration Server
encountered an unexpected Java error on host "".
I have jdk1.3 already installed. DB2 installation tries to install IBM
Jdk and since it finds out that jdk already exists it dosent install
it. But some components of db2 need IBM java and not any other
distribution.
So these are my specific questions, please answer them,

1) How to uninstall existing java forcefully using rpm ?
2) what are the components that are dependent on tools catalog, even
if i dont install tools catalog , will things work fine still ?
3) when i issue the following the installation freezes after some
point,
[root@tokyo Java-1.3]# rpm -vvi IBMJava2-SDK-1.3.1-2.0.i386.rpm

This assumes that this Java was installed using RPM in the first place.

The base server will work fine. However you'll not be able to use some of
the GUI tools (not sure exactly what ones).


3) when i issue the following the installation freezes after some

If you remove the Sun JDK (as above) then the IBM JDK should be installed as
part of the regular install (using db2setup).

I suspect this is because of the problems with Java you mentioned above

"/cse/applications/localhome/db2inst1/sqllib/bin/db2 CREATE TOOLS

Best to ask IBM support about this one.

Not having an Itanium box to hand I haven't tried the install myself.

If you want to start again, then you'll need to run db2stop (as db2inst1),
db2admin stop (as dasadm1), db2idrop (as root), remove the user IDs and
groups, get rid of the Sun JDK and then try db2setup again.

It's not something as obvious as running out of disk space ?
