    Unanswered: SQL1042C An unexpected system error occurred.SQLSTATE=58004

    I have installed db2 9.7 Express Edition.

    When i tried to connect to the database from the command line in the server instance, i am getting the error "SQL1042C An unexpected system error occurred.SQLSTATE=58004".

    What are the possible causes for this issues?

    SQL1042C  An unexpected system error occurred.
    A system error occurred. Some possible reasons for this error are:
    *  The database manager is not installed correctly or the environment is
       not set up correctly.
    *  On UNIX-based systems, db2iupdt may need to be run in order to update
       the DB2 instance to enable acquisition of a new system configuration
       or access to function associated with the installation or removal of
       certain product options, FixPaks, or modification levels.
    *  You might get this message if you are not using the correct DB2
       Administration Server password
    The command cannot be processed.
    User response:
    *  To update the instance to acquire a configuration or access to
       function run DB2IUPDT <InstName>.
    *  If the error occurred while trying to connect to a database, get a
       trace (instructions below) and call IBM support.
    If the problem falls outside of the above suggestions, ensure that the
    system time and date is correctly set, and make sure your system has
    enough memory and swapping/paging space available.
    Resubmit the current command.
    If the error continues, stop the database manager and restart it.
    If the error still continues, reinstall the database manager.
    If trace was active, invoke the Independent Trace Facility at the
    operating system command prompt. Contact your technical service
    representative with the following information:
    Required information:
    *  Problem description
    *  SQLCODE or message number
    *  SQLCA contents if possible
    *  Trace file if possible.
    Federated system users: if necessary isolate the problem to the data
    source rejecting the request (see the Troubleshooting Guide for
    procedures to follow to identify the failing data source). If the
    problem is with a data source follow the problem determination
    procedures for that data source.
    sqlcode: -1042
    sqlstate: 58004

    Also look in the db2diag.log file for any errors.
