    Unanswered: Help: Unable to install db2 udb v8 on Linux

    I am trying to install db2 udb v8 enterprise server(file name is 009_ESE_LNX_32_NLV) on redhat linux 7.1 .

    From shell prompt of the db2 install dir i did type ./db2setup, this brought up db2 install gui window. After selecting the install option from gui. This gives a error message as Not enough disk space to install db2. But there is 40gb of disk space available on the disk. I don't know how to correct this problem. Can anybody help me correcting this,

    Thanks

    Hi,
    Have you tried either of the following:

    1. Look for specific errors in the /tmp/db2setup.log.XXXX
    2. Use db2_install instead of db2setup and later run db2icrt and dascrt (to create the Instance and Admin. Server).

    I had issues using db2setup for DB2 Version 8 that I didn't encounter in DB2 Version 7 nor 6 for that matter.

    I've included URLs that has reference(s) on db2icrt and dascrt.

    Good luck.

    Hi,

    I did use ./db2_install and came across this error.

    ************************************************** *******
    [root@localhost /tmp]# more db2_install_log.3665
    yes

    no

    Disk space needed = 549372 KB Available = 104821 KB

    DBI1080E Disk full. Minimum space required in /opt is
    549372 KB, whereas only 104821 KB space is available.

    Explanation:

    There is not enough free space available in the file system or
    directory.

    User Response:

    Free more disk space and retry the command.


    db2_install program terminated prematurely.
    ************************************************** *******

    Thanks for the help.

    Hi,
    Normally the db2setup.log would have the specific error message towards the end of the log file. If what you posted was the complete text then I don't know... other than try running db2_install > db2icrt > dascrt. See previous reply.

    The log you posted was a logging of Options selected within the db2setup GUI and therefore doesn't provide specifics on why the install failed with that insufficient disk space error.

    Check in /tmp and do: ls -lrt db2setup* (and then examine the most recent db2setup.log file)

    Hi Tejpatil,
    I saw your post with the error message from the db2setup.log file:

    [root@localhost /tmp]# more db2_install_log.3665
    yes

    no

    Disk space needed = 549372 KB Available = 104821 KB

    DBI1080E Disk full. Minimum space required in /opt is
    549372 KB, whereas only 104821 KB space is available.

    Explanation:

    There is not enough free space available in the file system or
    directory.

    User Response:

    Free more disk space and retry the command.

    When you run either db2etup or db2_install program(s), it does the following:

    1. Copy the default DB2 binaries to /opt/IBM/db2
    2. Then later the db2icrt command installs into the instance owner's home directory. For example, my db2 instance owner is a userID called: db2v8 and when I ran db2icrt, it created the instance specific binaries and a "sqllib" directory in db2v8's home directory /home/db2v8.

    Run: df -k /opt (verify that the /opt filesystem has space) . It's more than likely that the /opt filesystem doesn't have enough space in which case touch base with your System Administrator and have him/her allocate more space to /opt before you re-run db2setup nor db2_isntall for that matter.
