Hi All:

I am using Ibm Db2 97 ExpressC on a windows xp computer.
I have administrator rights on my computer attached to a particular domain. I am at work, so I used the work domain.
I thought I installed the db2 972 Express Edition successfully because I go to the control centre and I see the "sample" database.

I forgot to add, when installing the db2 express Edition 972, under the screen "Set user information the Db2 Administration Server", I used the default for domain-->None-use local user account
User Name:db2admin

In the "controle centre" I tried to create a new database and get the following error:
SQL1092N "ALAM16" does not have the authority to perform the
requested command or operation.


Possible causes are as follows:

1. There was an attempt to execute a command or operation without having
the appropriate authority for that command or operation.
2. In a Windows 2000 environment in which Kerberos authentication is
being used, an attempt was made to log on to a computer with an
account that is not a domain account.
3. In an LDAP environment, the user ID or the DB2 Connect gateway might
not have the authority to perform the CATALOG DATABASE, CATALOG ...
4. In a Windows environment, the DB2 Server logon user ID,
DB2_GRP_LOOKUP setting, and other group enumeration settings might
not be configured properly, preventing the authorization ID
"<authorization-ID>" from gaining access. A very common sample
scenario follows:
* An attempt is made to connect to the DB2 Server by using a domain
user ID.
* The logon user ID for the DB2 Server instance is LocalSystem or a
local account.
* Groups (SYSCTRL, SYSADM, SYSMAINT) are defined to be domain
* DB2_GRP_LOOKUP is not set. As a result, an attempt is made to
enumerate the groups at the location where "<authorization-ID>" is
defined. This fails because the DB2 Server instance is running
under the context of LocalSystem or the local account and so
cannot access the network resources required to enumerate the

5. In a Windows environment with Extended Security enabled, the user ID
"<authorization-ID>" might be attempting to use or modify a database
resource, but the user ID is not a member of the local DB2USERS or
DB2ADMNS group. This is not allowed. The command cannot be processed.
6. On Windows Vista or later versions of the Windows operating system,
this command might be launched from a command prompt with only
standard user privileges, even if the user is a local administrator.
In this case, the command cannot be run because of insufficient
administrative privileges.

The command cannot be processed.

Federated system users: The data source might have detected that the
authorization ID does not have the authority to perform the requested

User response:

Solutions to the problem causes are as follows:

1. Log on as a user with the correct authority and retry the failed
command or operation. Contact your security administrator for
assistance with adjusting your authorization. Refer to the Database
Security Guide or search the DB2 Information Center for information
about required authorization for the attempted command or operation.
2. Log on with a domain account.
3. Run the command UPDATE DBM CFG USING CATALOG_NOAUTH YES at the client
or the gateway.
4. Make appropriate configuration settings changes. To fix the problem
described in the scenario in the Explanation, change the logon user
ID for the DB2 server instance to a domain account, and add this
domain account to the local Administrators group. If Windows Extended
Security is enabled, you must add the domain account to the DB2ADMNS
group or its equivalent. For more information about Windows operating
system security and groups, search the DB2 Information Center using
phrases such as "DB2_GRP_LOOKUP" and "Windows authentication".
5. Add the user ID "<authorization-ID>" to the local Windows security
groups DB2USERS or DB2ADMNS by using the Windows Computer Management
tool. A workaround is to disable Extended Security but this may not
be desirable because it reduces the level of security on your system.
6. Launch the command from a command window that is running with full
administrative privileges. To do this, you can launch the "Command
Window - Administrator" shortcut, and rerun the command.

Federated system users: If necessary, isolate the problem to the data
source that is rejecting the request (see the Troubleshooting Guide for
procedures to follow to identify the failing data source), and ensure
that the authorization ID has the appropriate authority on that data
