I had an interesting problem today and I was wondering if someone had the same and have a solution or explanation for it.
I had to install FixPack 7, v9.7 (we were on FP2) on one of our servers. We have 3 instances there: db2inst1, db2inst2 and db2arh; on db2inst1 and db2arh DB2AUTOSTART is set to YES.
I stopped WAS and application and I have set DB2AUTOSTART to OFF but instance was continuously autorestarted, over and over. I have set AUTORESTART to OFF, just to be on safe side, but that didn't help either. I've ran sqllib/bin/ipclean and killed all db2bp processes, but again, db2inst1 started again. There was no connections on database, that puzzles me even more.
Same thing happened with db2arh, but not with db2inst2.

Re: Instance - autostart2013-01-16T14:31:15ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.Hi Noh,
I suspect it's the fault monitor process; spawned from /etc/inittab. I refer you too:
db297: egrep -i db2fm /etc/inittab
fmc:2:respawn:/opt/IBM/db2/V10.1/bin/db2fmcd #DB2 Fault Monitor Coordinator
You may need to comment it out. Also check: ps -eafld | grep db2fmcd

I don't have root pass, so I have to organize this test with our AIX admins.
I will let you know if it helped.
