    Unanswered: Error? DWC06115E The call to the socket function getservbyname() failed

    Hi everyone,

    I'm running DB2 8.1 ee on AIX 5.1 and when I try to log into the Data Warehouse Center I get the following error:

    DWC06115E The call to the socket function getservbyname() failed. Service name: "vwkernel".
    RC = 6115 RC2 = 2

    Any ideas?

    This may help if anyone else gets this problem!

    On Windows, the Services file has been overwritten, either on the DB2 Client's PC or the Server.

    The following entries will need to be copied back into the Services file on the Client:
    vwkernel 11000/tcp # DB2 Warehouse Logger
    vwd 11001/tcp # DB2 Warehouse Logger
    vwlogger 11002/tcp # DB2 Warehouse Logger

    If the problem has occured on the DB2 Server, many entries may be missing at this point, but these three would need to be added back for sure.

    Our services file is located at: C:Windows\System32\drivers\etc
