    Question Unanswered: Cannot successfully install DB2 - db connection does not exist

    Having problems with DB2 installation on Windows 2000. Initially I tried to install DB2 Universal Database Enterprise Edition version 7.2. Then I uninstalled it and installed the fixpack 5 for version 8.1, but when I tried to execute the first script received the following error message:

    SQL1024N A database connection does not exist.


    There is no connection to a database. Other SQL statements
    cannot be processed unless an SQL CONNECT was previously

    The command cannot be processed.

    Since then I've tried uninstalling DB2 again and installing the full 8.1 product. I cannot get past this problem. The system shows that all db2 services are started, but I stil receive the error that the connection does not exist.

    What do I need to do get the installation completed successfully?

    Issue the following statement before your other SQL statements:

    connect to database-name;

    If you have not created a database (or not installed the sample database) then you need to issue the create database command.
