Hi, Can anyone help me on this.
I have an AIX system at V5.1 with v7.2 fix9 running. I know that you can install 2 versions of db2 on AIX. Installed v8.1 fix4 (without a problem).
The problem is when I try creating v8.1 instance. Even after v8.1 install, v7.2 instance creation ... is fine. This is the following message I get. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling v8.1 with no luck in instance creation.
./db2icrt -a SERVER -p 50000 -s ese -u fencev8 db2inst1

Hi, The install was clean. To make sure I did a reinstall. The userids were recreated. Also tried a different user. Before the reinstall, yes cleaned up failed installs. There were no failed installs. V8.1 install was smooth.
Check root's PATH which should not reference sqllib/bin (or other folders under sqllib). If these references are present, remove them from root's PATH and resubmit the db2icrt command. DB2 does not support root as an instance owner.
This is what I found at the IBM website when I had the same problem
Make sure that the ID is valid, login in as the id first, don't su to it, Make sure the password is valid,
Hi, Great. Thanks a lot for your help. It worked. I didn't use root to create instance but looks like someone in the past tested an instance and a version 7.2 instance path was placed. Can you please give me the site you were talking about? Thanks again.
