DB2 8.1 to SP10

P: n/a
I'm currently trying to update a dev DB2 server (running on SUSE 9) to
8.1 SP10 and once I'm completed and try to do db2start, I get this
error: db2start: error while loading shared libraries: libibmc++.so.1:
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This library is indeed in my system and its the latest one from SUSE 9
SP2... any idea?

Did you follow the instructions in the fixpak readme?

Larry,

yes I did, it seems that IBM decided to omit mentionning in the FP10
readme to reinstall the libibmc++.so.1 after applying the FP. I found
that while reading the FP9 readme. it seems that FP10 is removing the
library in the installation process.

I'm running on SUSE 9.3 and I alse applied FP10 according to the README -
there wasn't any problem, and I don't have the libibmc++ lib on my system.
Did you update all your DB2 instances after you installed the FP?

I think that it may be related to the fact that I'm using 64 bit
instances versus 32 bit. I'm running SUSE 9 SP3 Enterprise Edition.
We didn't have to apply update to the instances since it's a new system
we just created and updated before adding DBs.

Do you mean that you installed DB2, applied FP10, then created the instance
and finally created the databases?

Or did you install DB2, created at least one instance during the install
process, then applied FP10 and at last created the databases?

The second scenario requires an instance update! You should have run
"db2iupdt" to bring the executable, libraries and whatever else resides in
the sqllib/ directory of your instance to the correct level.

I did scenario 1, and FP10 whipped out the libibmc++.so.1 from the
opt/IBM/DB2/Lib and Lib64 directory.
