Post Install Recommendations
----------------------------

Verify that you have access to the DB2 Information Center based on the
choices you made during this installation. If you performed a typical
o
r a compact installation, verify that you can access the IBM Web site
using the internet. If you performed a custom installation, verify
that
you can access the DB2 Information Center location specified during
the installation.

Run First Steps (db2fs) as a regular, non-privileged userid. You will
need a supported web browser in the path of this userid and you must
ex
ecute the db2profile script from the instance to be administered.

Install DB2 Developer Workbench. The DB2 Developer Workbench replaces
the Development Center from DB2 UDB Version 8 on Windows. It is on a
sep
arate CD in your DB2 package. The Developer Workbench is a
comprehensive development environment for creating, editing,
debugging, deploying,
and testing DB2 stored procedures and user-defined functions. You can
also use this tool to create, edit and run SQL statements and XML
querie
s, and develop SQLJ applications.

Review the response file created at /root/db2exp.rsp. Additional
information about response file installation is available in the DB2
documen
tation under "Installing DB2 using a response file".

Amber,

I suspect the problem is that you've created the user db2inst1 in a group
with a name longer than 8 characters. The "standard" group name for
db2inst1 is db2grp1, for db2fenc1 is db2fgrp1 and for dasusr1 is dasadm1.

Did you create the users manually yourself and then specify to use existing
users as part of the install ?

Suggest you rework to the above and try again.

It looks like the software install went fine, so you should be OK to set up
the instance manually using commands. After creating the instance there
are a couple of additional steps you'll need to perform -

Run as db2inst1 -

db2set DB2COMM=TCPIP
db2set DB2AUTOSTART=YES

Run as root -

/opt/ibm/db2/V9.1/cfg/db2ln

In the .profile of db2inst1 and any users you are going to access DB2 from
the command line you will want to put the following lines, if they don't
already exist -

if [ -f /home/db2inst1/sqllib/db2profile ]; then
. /home/db2inst1/sqllib/db2profile
fi

You should then be able to start the instance, from db2inst1, by running -

db2start

DB2 should start automatically at boot time since we added the parameter to
autostart the instance.

Any more problems give me a shout. I've done this so many times now I can
virtually do it in my sleep. I even wrote an article for IDUG Solutions
Journal on installing DB2 V8 without the GUI way back in 2003 !!!
