DB2 8.1 ESE Win32 installation problem

P: n/a
Hi All,
I'm trying to install DB2 Enterprise Edition 8.1 (partitioned installation)
onto a clean Win 2k SP4 advanced server box. The problem is the partitioned
installation requires a "Domain User" account for the partition (at least
that is what it tells me at some point during the install) whereas a
non-partitioned installation doesn't need one. Whenever I try to install DB2
logged in as a domain admin the installation tells me that I am not a local
admin and therefore don't have rights. I cannot add the domain administrator
to the local administrators group because it is already a member of the
local administrators group.

I'm pretty certain this is a common problem but I looked in the group for a
FAQ posted and didn't see one. Also, if you have ever tried to search IBM's
website for help you'll understand why I came here instead :)

If anyone can point me to a resource or has experienced the problem and
knows what to do about the installation's incorrectness about my rights (and
I have verified I have full local administrative power when logged in as the
domain admin) or how I should go about getting it installed it would be much
appreciated.

thanks

Have you defined the same userid as both a domain user and a local user? If
so, remove the local user. Do you have the same userid in multiple domains
in the same forest? If so, use a unique userid. Does your userid meet the
restricted naming conventions imposed by DB2? If not, use a userid that
does.

Yes, the IBM web site search is a little "awkward". But Google isn't bad.

I think the install guide indicates that the account you use to
install must have certain advanced user rights..Check local policy on
that machine and make sure your domain or local admin group has those
rights. google advanced user rights db2 to find the ones it needs or
from the docs as I do not remember off the top of my head. If not try
logging in using a local admin account and install. I do not recall
it "making" you use a domain account. I think you have choice of
domain or local.
