    Unanswered: db2imigr fails for db2 v9.1 migration

    I'm attemping to migrate a 8.2 instance to 9.1 fp2 on aix. db2chkmig appears to run successfully as both a stand alone process and part of
    db2imigr. All the conditions are true as described on ibm's page

    Below is are the contents of my logs: the instance is stopped and I'm
    running at root.

    any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

    I had the same problem and there some known errors in this area.
    support center suggested me to edit db2imigr or another script that was called from db2imigr. find the update dbm cfg statement and force the rc to 0
    the instance was migrated and had to manually update the dbm cfg
