    Unanswered: Installing DB2 on Debian 5 (Lenny) or other "unsupported" distro


    I have installed DB2 on two servers (Centos and Debian) according to
    Installing IBM DB2 v8 fp17a on Debian Lenny (or other distro like Ubuntu) manually - Aulix WebGUI Hosting

    It works very fine on Centos 64 bit but backup/restore hangs on Debian
    32 bit
    Following applies to Debian instance:

    New database is created fine: db2 create db test1
    It is connected fine by: db2 connect to test1

    Backup "hangs" (works indefinitely long)
    db2stop force "hangs" too

    Please suggest how to fix Debian installation.
    I can provide db2diag.log if needed.

    Thanks, Alex

    Make sure the kernel versions and patches are up to the IBM recommended levels.

    Have you used the recommended semophore settings ?

    I am using default Debian kernel:

    grep Mem /proc/meminfo
    MemTotal: 4150084 kB
    MemFree: 3947712 kB

    ipcs -l

    ------ Shared Memory Limits --------
    max number of segments = 4096
    max seg size (kbytes) = 4194303
    max total shared memory (kbytes) = 4194304
    min seg size (bytes) = 1

    ------ Semaphore Limits --------
    max number of arrays = 1024
    max semaphores per array = 250
    max semaphores system wide = 25600
    max ops per semop call = 32
    semaphore max value = 32767

    ------ Messages: Limits --------
    max queues system wide = 1024
