Pinned topic Deinstall db2 v7 on AIX

‏2006-02-14T02:50:06Z |
For my first deinstallation, I modify the deinstall script provided
for db2 v8 to deinstall v7. However, the deinstallation is not completed
and one of the fileset is not deinstalled (db2_07_01.conv.jp).

When I try to list the fileset (lslpp -l | grep db2), the result is

lslpp: 0504-125 Error while processing fileset db2_07_01.conv.jp.
lslpp: 0504-307 No match was found for the SWVPD data search.
db2_07_01.client 7.1.0.60 COMMITTED Client Application Enabler
db2_07_01.conv.jp 7.1.0.43 DEINSTALLING Code Page Conversion Tables -

it shows that db2_07_01.conv.jp is deinstalling.
After that, i try to run "installp -u db2_07_01", however, the deinstallation
is not successful.

The error message :

0503-422 installp: An internal error has occurred. Expected
information was not found in the Software Vital Product Data.
LPP_HISTORY.lpp_id -> LPP_TABLE.name = db2_07_01.conv.jp0503-040 installp: A system error occurred while attempting
to access the Software Vital Product Data.
Use local problem reporting procedures.
vpdreslpp_name LPP_TABLE.name = db2_07_01.conv.jp
Here, i have two questions.
1. Wha is the meaning of this message?
2. How can I deinstall db2_07_01.conv.jp?

Thanks.

    Why not use the db2_deinstall that is provided with v7?

    Using smit or smitty may be easier as it shows more options on dealing with
    things. In this case, I would try a clean-up operation: installp -C
    db2_07_01.conv.jp

    If that doesn't work, I would suggest contacting AIX support as the problem
    appears to be in using installp.

    I found installp -C cannot help me to clean the fileset db2_07_01.conv.jp as
    installp -C is to clean up the fileset during failed installation.

    0503-439 installp: No filesets were found in the Software Vital
    Product Database that could be cleaned up.

    However, in the case I face, it is part of failure of deinstallation; so I cannot clean up the fileset. When i list out the fileset by issuing "lslpp -l | grep db2", it lists out

    lslpp: 0504-125 Error while processing fileset db2_07_01.conv.jp.
    lslpp: 0504-307 No match was found for the SWVPD data search.

    As I said earlier, I would suggest opening a PMR with AIX support. I'm not
    sure what could have happened to get you into this state.
