unable to start db2 admin server

P: n/a

sort of a newbie question, but anyways i cant connect to a database
because i cant start the db2admin server. running db2 v8 on winxp.
basically when i do "db2admin start" it gives me SQL4412N error, logon
user account is invalid. if i attempt to "create /user:user
/password:pass" it says "SQL4405W The DB2 Administration Server already
exists." if i try setid, it says the logon user account is invalid.
setschedid returns command successful, but the db2admin still wont
start. i would appreciate some help. thanks.

sorry, that's probably my fault. i forgot to mention that when i tried
to start my database, via the control center, it gave me SQL22212N
error, about the admin server. so i tried to start the admin server,
and that's how those problems occurred.

Try going into Windows Services and set the Log On account properly for
DB2DAS. Then try to start the service (probably good to set it to automatic
startup).

On which OS are you running DB2?
If on windows you can start db2 by running the command db2start from the
DB2 Command Window or by starting it from the services window.
You can also define the user which is used to run the administration
server under thru the services window. This way you can automatically
check the supplied user.
