    Arrow Unanswered: db2 8.1 installation on AIX 5.3

    Guys
    I am trying to install db2 8.1 client on one of my AIX box(5.3).

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    bash-3.00# ./db2_install -d <my_customised_db2dir>

    Specify one or more of the following keywords,
    separated by spaces, to install DB2 products.
    Keyword Product Description
    DB2.ESE DB2 Enterprise Server Edition for AIX
    DB2.ADMCL DB2 Administration Client for AIX
    DB2.ADCL DB2 Application Development Client for AIX

    Enter "help" to redisplay product names.
    Enter "quit" to exit.
    ************************************************** *********
    DB2.ADMCL
    Disk space needed = 387676 KB Available = 219984 KB
    DBI1080E Disk full. Minimum space required in /usr/opt/db2_08_01 is
    387676 KB, whereas only 219984 KB space is available.

    Explanation:

    There is not enough free space available in the file system or
    directory.

    User Response:

    Free more disk space and retry the command.

    The installation logfile can be found in /tmp/db2_install_log.389328.
    db2_install program terminated prematurely.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    My query here is if i am mentioning a separate (customised) directory for db2 8.1 installation then why its still going into /usr/opt.

    Any ideas/thoughts are welcome.

    Regards
    Abhi

    For V8 installation Aix will take /usr/opt/db2_08_01 directory as a default directory. You cant change default directory. Free some files and install.
