Pinned topic Unable to install Fixpack 5 - insufficient diskspace!?

‏2010-09-14T11:06:42Z |
Hi,

I am trying to upgrade DB2Everyplace Enterprise from 9.1.4 to 9.1.5 on a Win2003 SP1 Server System which resides on a VMWare box.
While having plenty of space free (~7GB C, ~12GB D), the installer refuses to proceed due to insufficient disk space in temp directory. (see log file)

Why is that happening? The user is administrator (I also tried Administrator account).

Strangely it calculates the diskspace with "-1". Is that new calculation feature maybe not working properly? Is VMWare the reason?

Please advise, we currently have a production downtime.

Thanks!
Thomas

    Hi Thomas,

    I got failure from log file
    (14.09.2010 10:35:54), Install, com.ibm.db2e.install.DiskSpaceCheckAction, dbg, Disk space check action: -1 bytes free disk space have been detected under D:\IBM\DB2Everyplace91

    Sorry to say that it seem the free disk space check functionality does not work well. Could you help to show me the output when issue follwing two commands:
    1. CMD Line>cmd.exe /C dir C:\
    2. CMD Line>cmd.exe /C dir D:\

    I can provide a workaround to disable the disk space check action before installing DB2e v9.1 fixpak 5.

    CMD Line>{InstallDir}\jvm\bin\java -jar DB2EveryplaceUpdateInstallerWizard.jar -silent -options NoDiskSpaceCheck.rsp

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Best Regards,

    Rui

    Hi,

    Are you an official customer to DB2e? if so, you can also open a PMR in order to track this issue and get more help.

    Hello,

    There is another way to disable disk space check action under GUI mode.

    1. Edit and add one line into {InstallDir}/DB2EveryplaceUpdateInstallerWizard.bat
    #################################################################
    ...
    :LaunchInstaller
    echo Launching DB2 Everyplace Update Installation Wizard .....
    %JAVA_HOME%\bin\java -jar DB2EveryplaceUpdateInstallerWizard.jar -W DiskSpaceCheckAction.active=false -W DiskspaceInsufferablePanel.active=false
    #################################################################

    2. Save & run {InstallDir}/DB2EveryplaceUpdateInstallerWizard.bat

    Best regards

    Hi Rui,

    Thanks a lot for your quick reply. I was able to turn off diskspace check and to install the Fixpack!

    Just one note, I got this message in the console after adding the parameters to the .bat-file as you described in your last post.

    
    Could not find bean DiskspaceInsufferablePanel
    


    One last question in regards to 9.1.5: is that announced RemoteMDAC for 9.1.5 different to the MDAC that is shipped with the DB2e and its fixpack or is it just a remote version?

    Thanks and Regards,
    Thomas

    Thomas,

    Glad to hear that it works :) and you can ignore the warning of "Could not find bean DiskspaceInsufferablePanel" in the console.

    Moreover, I can not reproduce disk space check failure on my laptop, if possible, could you send me the output when executing the command I've mentioned before? If it is a truly problem, I will open a defect and fix it soon. Thanks a lot!

    For your question about RemoteMDAC for 9.1.5 different to the MDAC that is shipped with the DB2e and its fixpack or is it just a remote version? --- It is just a remote version, the basic functionilities are same. In addition, the tool is free download and allows user to have such ability to manage subscriptions in MDAC without fully installing DB2 Everyplace Enterprise Edition.

    Regards,
    Rui

    Hi Rui,

    This is the outcome of the two commands:

    
    C:\Documents and Settings\db2admin>CMD Line>cmd.exe /C dir C:\ The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.   C:\Documents and Settings\db2admin>CMD Line>cmd.exe /C dir D:\ The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.
    


    Remember, it is a VMWare Box, maybe the installed VMWare-Tools are occupyingthis process (cmd?)?

    I could also reproduce this on another differently installed Windows box running on VMWare.

    Thomas

    Hm, seems like I was a little puzzled yesterday evening... Here are the results after executing your cmd's correctly:
