Pinned topic db2rfe not installed. Where is it? Can

‏2010-04-29T20:14:04Z |
db2rfe is not installed when I installed db2 9.5 Enterprise on my Solaris machine.

Is db2rfe part of a separate download? Where can I get this file for Solaris?

    It should be under sqllib/instance dir.

    hope that helps,

    Thanks. There is not an instance folder under sqllib.
    I've searched the entire system from the / level for db2rfe and cannot find it.

    How was the db2 installed, including what userid used to install the DB2? How the instance was created, including which command was run and which userid ran the command?

    I found out the program is only installed in a non-root db2 install. If there is a root install of db2, then that files is not installed.

    That's correct. A DB2 instance created by root user using a install copy owned by root does not need this tool, so it is not installed with root install.

    To locate the this program in a non-root db2 install, you can issue command below from your home directory: 

    find / -name db2rfe.cfg

    Or just go to /home/<non-root-user>/sqllib/instance

    And then to execute the program you issue this command:
    sudo ./db2rfe -f db2rfe.cfg
