We recently bought 2 boxes running on Solaris 8. It failed when I tried installing DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition on it. I have gone through the "pre-installation" process step by step. Like applying all the necessary patches, installing the latest JRE etc.. I can get to the set up wizard... specify configurations etc... it freezes at the last window which should show the summary of the configurations. I use Cygwin to connect to the machines right now. Any pointers as to why this is happening? Any help would be appreciated.

DB2 V8.1 Connect Unlimited Edition for Solaris.
I have installed DB2 connect EE saturday on Solaris 8.
When I tried to use the setup it freezes on the first window, we are using
the ssh. so instead of wasting my time, I uses the db2_install and it works.
Thanks for the prompt reply. I am new to Solaris.... Could you elaborate.. what would the the steps to get it running? Can i use Control center later on? I did use db2_install.. i dont see db2 processes in the solaris process center.... i am a GUI guy . Thanks mujeeb.
Thank you mujeeb. Works like a charm. I wonder if it was a bug. Anyways... one last question... i cataloged a database... and then tried to access it from a control center from one of the window boxes... it wouldnt accept a host name... i did update the SVCNAME and port number to 50000. Any pointers?
Everything seemed to work satisfactorily, until i installed Java 1.4.2 and used a symbolic link to point to the latest installation. I created a 64 bit instance and tried to add a database using the control center, it freezes randomly. My guess is that i am missing something with the JRE. I researched and went through the steps again. I am still stuck. Any pointers?

Could you create the database from the command prompt.
1. Log in as instance user
2. use the command
db2 "create database <db_name>" // You can drop that database anytime
If you can do that then the problem is with db2cc.
You can open the db2cc in a text editor and can see what it is doing.
One advice if you want to work in Unix enviroment, try to use db2 system commands instead of GUI tool.
I was able to use db2system commands. I was able to create database, query it etc.. It is the control center then... Thanks for the advice..
I was just thinking of another workaround for this problem. Now that i have modified the /etc/services file and added a SVCENAME and a port, i can as well connect and try using the control center from admin client on of the windows boxes.... Any ideas as to how to go about it? It is giving me a communications error...
