When you have your IBM Tivoli Network Manager (ITNM) core server and DB2 installed on the same server, AND you want to set up your ITNM server to automatically restart upon a reboot, there are a couple of configuration items that you will need to take.

Run the create_all_control.sh script and use the "auto_only" option #source... [More]
