    Unanswered: db2profile issue.

    I have a db2 9.5 server on linux. Previously I was using a db2isnt1 one id but due to security changes I was told to create a new id. I created a new id and got my self the role of sysadm.

    The problem now is that when I log on to server using ssh session. I can't use the db2 command it gives me the following error

    -bash: db2: command not found

    I know its because the db2 environment isn't running but even one I go execute the /home/db2inst1/sqllib/db2profile command I still gives me the same error..

    what am I missing here?? help

    and how can I edit my bash that i don't have to run the db2profile command again everytime I login

    you should never execute the profile of another user
    create a user instance for this new user
    db2profile needs to be executed each time you logon because the path and other settings have to be set..

    Do not agree. Nothing wrong with executing this script from the instance owner's home dir. My guess is you forgot the "dot space".
    do not
    . /home/db2inst1/sqllib/db2profile
    to make it valid for your current session.

    add these lines to your .bash_profile

    if [ -f /home/insthome/sqllib/db2profile ]; then
        . /home/insthome/sqllib/db2profile
    from then every time you login. it will run that inst profile

    Please log into your new instance, and type the below..

    This would work for you :-)

    . ~/sqllib/db2profile
