I am still new to DB2 and need to apply V8 FP6 on AIX platform.
#1) In the readme, it indicated that prior to install, I have run the following commands for each instance:
db2 force applications all
db2licd -end # run at each physical node
My DB2 server has 3 db2 instances. Do I need to run "db2licd -end" for each instance under the instance ID? I understand db2licd is a licensing daemon.
Will only running once under any of the instance ID is sufficient?
I am not sure what it means by run at each physical node.
#2) also currently when I do "ps -ef |grep db2licd", I did not see any process running. Is this how it should be?
#3) It also indicate to stop all instances using DB2 including the fault monitor. If I stop fault monitor with db2fm -d command, will the fault monitor start up again after I do db2start to start up the instance?
