    Unanswered: installation questions db2 v9.5

    I will be installing DB2 v9.5 on Linux using db2_install. Have some questions:
    - do I need to install DAS on database server only or both database and appl. servers?
    - when to apply licence before or after installing fixpacks?
    - do I need to install products and then fixpacks? Or just fixpacks? I've heard product fixpacks contain the whole product now.

    Thanks in advance
    DB2 9.5/9.7 on Unix/AIX 6.1/Linux

    1) You only need to install DAS on database server
    2) Does not matter, see 3
    3) That is correct, you can install just the fixpack initially without installing the GA version.
