I'm new to DB2. Installed DB2 Express C (64 bit) on a laptop with Windows 7 Pro (64 bit). The installation went smoothly with no errors. I then ran validation which failed with the following:
-------- Instance validation for "DB2" starts --------
Task 2 : Validating the default instance setting
Status 2 : Success
Task 3 : Validating SYSADM authority
Status 3 : Failure
DBI1338E The validation of instance DB2 failed. Reason code=5.
The log gives some suggestions, though some are clearly not relevant (check /etc/services permissions - applies to Linux).
Not sure how to proceed here. Any recommendations?
