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
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.
Make sure the kernel versions and patches are up to the IBM recommended levels.
Have you used the recommended semophore settings ?
