    seen this problem before. just to indicate dbm has not been updated with SYSADM_GROUP
    it is possible the instance owner has no primary group
    no problem - go to instance and update dbm cfg using SYSADM_GROUP xxx
    this will correct the problem

    Instance owner has the primary group. I can't even run a db2 command. Instance doesn't start at all.

    Check /etc/hosts

    I've ran into similar problem when a local host's name has not been entered as an alias to the localhost entry in the /etc/hosts file. Check that.
