Unanswered: Instance Owner creation error for DB2 V9.5
I am trying to create the instance owner after installing DB2 V9.5 ESE 64 bits on VMWare ESX 3.5 server. I used the following steps.
1. Install DB2 V9.5 ESE (the message says it is successful)
2. Apply the latest fix pack 5 for DB2 V9.5. (it was successful)
Then tried to create the instance by issuing the following command.
/opt/ibm/db2/instance/db2icrt -u db2fence dwapinst
There was error in creating the instance. When I checked the log file it says
SQL6031N Error in the db2nodes.cfg file at line number "0". Reason code
Update DBM cfg SYSADM_GROUP errcode = 8
>>>>> Error message = SQL6031N Error in the db2nodes.cfg file at line number "0". Reason code
DBI1703E No valid service name or port number found.
So I checked the services file and the tcp/ip ports were not entered at the end of this file. The SQLLIB is not also created.
Can someone please tell me how to fix this problem.
I am assuming the the DB2 commands are not working on the server you are having problems with. That is because you need to issue those commands as the instance owner, and you are having problems setting it up. What happens if you issue the db2icrt command with the -p 55000 option added?
