error upgrading from DB2 7.2 to DB2 8.2

Hi, I experienced a problem while upgrading from DB2 UDB LUW Workgroup
edition 7.2 FixPak 10a to Workgroup Server edition 8.2 FixPak 12. The
install wizard said the upgrade was successful but none of the MIGRATE
commands worked due to authorization problems.
The install log showed the following message for each instance -

1: ERROR:An error occurred while creating the instance "DB2". The
return code is
"-1959". Create the instance manually using the command "db2icrt".
1: Creating/migrating DB2 instances:.......Failure

and this in turn caused more problems later -

1: ERROR:An error occurred while configuring the database "DDBDTOOL".
1: ERROR:UPDATE NOTIFICATION LIST ADD CONTACT 'DB2 DBA'
SQL1092N "DUDBDSVC" does not have the authority to perform the
requested command.
1: Configuring health alert notifications:.......Success
㗰ɝ ERROR:SQL1013N The database alias name or database name
"DDBDTOOL" could not be

found. SQLSTATE=42705
1: ERROR:An error occurred while running the command
"E:\SQLLIB\bin\db2.exe CREATE
TOOLS CATALOG SYSTOOLS USE EXISTING DATABASE DDBDTOOL FORCE" to
initialize
and/or migrate the DB2 tools catalog database. The return value is "4".

1: Creating DB2 tools catalog:.......Failure
1: Unable to find the string resource 3574:.......Failure
1: Starting all DB2 services:.......Success
1: WARNING:A minor error occurred while installing "DB2 Workgroup
Server Edition"
on this computer. Some features may not function correctly.

A GET DBM CFG for each instance shows -

Database manager configuration release level = 0x0900

Which I believe means it is still at 7.2

I can't seem to find any indication of what a "-1959" is or what causes
it. Dropping and re-creating the instances and re-cataloging the
databases got us back working but I would like to avoid this on the
other servers.

Any ideas?

I highly suggest calling IBM for this and opening a PMR. I don't think that
this is something that many here will have encountered, and you're best off
by contacting the experts.

Sorry, I should have mentioned that I have already raised a PMR. A
couple of suggestions came out of it but were not applicable in our
case. I also tried to reproduce the problem on a test server with no
success. But Murphy being Murphy its bound to happen on the rest of the
servers I have to upgrade.
I suppose I was hoping someone might have seen and solved this without
involving IBM.
