    Unanswered: db2start not working

    DB2 AIX WSE V9.5 FP2a

    Database was not brought down and our AIX team member has rebooted the server. The server had two instances, after the server came up. We started instances. One of them started and another wouldn't start.

    After issuing db2start, no error is seen in diag.log for 10 mins and after 10 mins, this error comes out

    2010-07-01- I300354A347 LEVEL: Warning
    PID : 360612 TID : 1 PROC : db2bp
    INSTANCE: teiemsnz NODE : 000
    EDUID : 1
    FUNCTION: DB2 UDB, Connection Manager, sqleUCappImpConnect, probe:150
    MESSAGE : ZRC=0x81360012=-2127167470=SQLZ_RC_CMERR, SQLT_SQLJC
    "External Comm error"

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I tried doing ps/kill, ipcs/ipcrm, ipclean, db2nkill{as it is wse}, db2ftok [create new file] and even then instance wouldn't start. When I do ipcs -a | grep -i [instname] . I see these leftover messages which wouldn't go with ipcrm. Are those the one creating problem

    Finally it started.

    I did db2stop on the other instance of that server and killed all the processes of that instance and cleared all the db2 processes running on the box. After doing that, the above three messages disappeared and db2 started sucessfully. Not sure what caused it not to start.

    Those three shared memory segments were defunct (D in the first position under mode column). From "man ipcs":

    If the associated shared memory segment has been removed. It disappears when the last process attached to the segment
    detaches it.
