    Unanswered: Unable to create the instance

    I'm trying to install DB2 V8.2 on
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client release 5.3 Beta (Tikanga).
    The steps that I have followed are.
    1. Changed the kernel parameter in sysctl.conf file.
    2. Installed on command prompt.
    3. Created groups and users.
    4. Now when I'm trying to create instance
    ./db2icrt -a server -u db2fenc1 <user>
    the error that I'm facing is

    DBI1281E The database manager configuration file could not be

    manager configuration file. A DB2 instance could not be created

    Does the instance owner have a home directory defined that is owned by that user? It would also help if they had all their profile files in place on the home directory (although not mandatory to create the instance).

    So, did you check the contents of /tmp/db2icrt.log.6980, as the error message had suggested?
    "It does not work" is not a valid problem statement.
