DB2WSUE License grief. (Permanent license is said the have expiredafter upgrade to FP8.2.6)

Hi hi everyone.

We have upgraded our DB2 LUW 8.2.1 which was directly installed from our
DB2 CD's to DB2 LUW 8.2.6 (FP13). (system: HP DL385 (AMD64), single
socket, dual core. 8GB memory. SLES 10. NetApp FAS250 storage array).

This went quite well, but it rendered our permanent (legal) DB2 license
invalid, and I can see of no way to get our environment up and running
with FP13 installed.

Is there someone who is familiar with the problem and someone who knows
of any solutions?

Additional info comming up:
First, our DB2WSUE.LIC has been deemed valid by IBM support.

installed. You can install the license via using License
Center or
db2licm command line utility. The license file can be
obtained from
your licensed product CD.


Now... the above is kinda weird...
Why do I see a complaint about a missing license on "DB2 Enterprise
Server Edition?"

Correct me if I'm wrong.. But DB2 FP13 for linux, there's only one
version for all product versions, is there not? The license determines
the way the package behaves? This is what I've been told from IBM support.

And another question (to perhaps trace it back to IBM administration);
Does DB2 check it's license against a server at IBM? a 'phone home'?
I heard rumours about this being in DB2-9.

Any help is highly appreciated.

You appear to have valid DB2 WSUE license. You appear to have installed (perhaps
more than 90 days ago) DB2 ESE - whose license expired.

Perhaps if you uninstall DB2 ESE and install DB2 WSUE - you will be back to normal?

Or - you can experiment with creating a new instance - of type WSUE - and try to
start it.

Ty for your reply.

That's the odd thing, I have never installed db2 ESE.
And the 8.2.1 version I start with, if I execute a db2licm -l I get this
output.

db2inst@enterprise:~db2licm -l
Product Name = "DB2 Workgroup Server
Unlimited Edition"
Product Identifier = "DB2WSUE"
Version Information = "8.2"
Expiry Date = "Permanent"
Number of processors = "1"
Number of licensed processors = "1"

It's not until I install the fixpak, that those other expired things
show up.

I checked the installation steps, but I haven't seen anything that
should configure the fixpak for use with a specific product.

I also got a download link from IBM support with the fixpak I *should*
use... But it gives me the same grief.

I've dropped the instance several times (including deleting the db2inst
directory and the /var/db2 directory), and to no success.. The same
error after the instance has been created.

Hmmm... experimenting with the instance types...

I did that...

db2icrt -u db2fenc -w 64 -s wse db2inst

This is what I got back:

db2inst@elmo:~db2start
SQL8008N The product "DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition" does not have a
valid
license key installed and the evaluation period has expired. Functions
specific to this product are not enabled.
SQL8008N The product "DB2 Personal Edition" does not have a valid

installed and the evaluation period has expired. Functions specific to
this

SQL8008N The product "DB2 Enterprise Server Edition" does not have a valid

SQL8008N The product "DB2 Universal Database Express Edition" does not

Functions

SQL1063N DB2START processing was successful.

Although I see a lot of messages on licenses, the bottom one is the one
that makes me happy :)

And look at this:

db2inst@elmo:~db2 connect to test

Database Connection Information

Database server = DB2/LINUXX8664 8.2.6
SQL authorization ID = DB2INST
Local database alias = TEST
Nice...

Is there perhaps any way I can get rid of those expired things?
They are not removable with db2licm -r <name>

Btw.
Ty. for the great tip.

I presume you used this link:

http://www-306.ibm.com/software/data...md2664bit.html
You may want to open PMR if this is urgent to cleanup - I may be able to play
with V8 later this week.

Indeed... that's the link.

On executing installfixpak -y, it seems it's installing *all* products.
(the fixpack being a fixpack for all db2 versions).

So we're getting closer to the source of the problem, but still not
quite sure what's causing it.
