    Unanswered: Problem in creating das and db2 instances in linux

    Hey,

    I installed DB2 UDB V8 on linux (RedHat V7.2) and created the das and db2 instances. When I deleted the product, I made the mistake of not stopping the instances and removing them before removing the product.

    Now, I have reinstalled the DB2 UDB and the UDB is not allowing to create the das nor the regular instance. It tells me that the DAS and the instance are already available. I have manually deleted those directories too. I deleted and created the users, but that hasn't helped me any.

    One of my colleagues told that I need to remove a file from /tmp/*.lck and also all the files in /var/sadm/patch/.superseed. However, I dont have these files. The second would not be available as I hadn't installed any of the patches.

    Looks like the DB2 has written into some system file and it is looking every time into the same file which I haven't deleted. But I don't which file is that.

    Please advise.

    Hope you would have restarted the machine ...

    To know what's going wrong, issue the db2icrt command with the debug option (-d ? ) and browse through the trace

    Cheers
