    Unanswered: instance creation problem

    Hi All,

    ENV: DB2 UDB v8.2 FP 7, AIX 5.2 (both the servers)

    I have to migrate the database from our old prod to the new prod server.
    I have installed the DB2 software , applied the fixpaks on the new prod server. But before creating the instance i copied the /etc/services from old to the new one. I then used this command to create the instance

    db2icrt -s ESE -p DB2_prod2 -w 32 -u prodf2 prod2

    Though the instance is created successfully but I get this error:

    An error occurred while updating the services file on the system for the service
    name "DB2_prod2" with port "60000"

    This this how the new prod server's services file look like:

    DB2_prod2 60000/tcp
    DB2_prod2_1 60001/tcp
    DB2_prod2_3 60002/tcp
    DB2_prod2_END 60003/tcp

    DO I need to be worried and recreate this instance with some different setting? Is there a workaround for this?

    just check db2 get dbm cfg |grep SVCE
    check that svcename is pointing to correct entry in /etc/services with expected port number and start db2 (db2start) if binding with tcpip fails, this will be indicated at start of db2.
    otherwise db2 update dbm cfg using svcename xxxx
