    Question Unanswered: Silent Installation of DB2 V8.1 Fixpack 2

    Has anyone out there ever managed to silently install DB2 V8.1 Fixpack 2?

    Here's what I've done so far.

    1. Installed DB2 V8.1
    2. Extracted the Update.exe file in Winzip to extract the msp patch installation file.
    3. Run the msp file with the command

    msiexec /p db2.msp /l* Db2FixPack.log /qn

    Which should install the fixpack silently and put the output in said log file.

    However, the installation seems to chug along for a few minutes, then it just ends, and the log file doesnt contain anything useful.

    I've checked the versioning information afterwards, and DB2 is still at the 8.1 pre-fix pack level.

    Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks.

    I forgot to mention, I'm installing on Win2K, Service pack 4, and that a normal, attended installation works fine.
