    Unanswered: Instance Creation Problem

    Hi All,
    When I try to create an instance after logging in as ROOT user I'm getting this error

    Check the file permission , under /usr/opt/ for db2_ directory.
    When I have this problem at solaris, I change the /opt/IBM directory
    to 755.

    you can also turn the debug flag at db2icrt command, but the output is mostly helpful to IBM support.

    You can use .

    db2icrt -d -a server -u db2fenc1 db2inst1.


    All other things looks fine.
    Check the primary group of db2inst1.

    The beauty (or ugliness ) of db2icrt and some of the other instance-level commands is that they're shell scripts. Often you can grep through them and find the point of failure, if you're into that sort of thing. Or just call IBM support and let them do it.
