Where is the license?
With the latest versions of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center, the DB2 Enterprise Server 9.7 installation image does not include the license required. Rather, the license is available as a separate part that can be downloaded and activated, following the directions provided with the keys. Knowing that it is separate step will save you from trouble as you work through the installation.
If you are viewing one of the the download docs on the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center support site, you can see that the new part number (CZ381ML) for DB2 Enterprise Server Edition, Version 9.7 Quick Start Guide and Activation Keys has been added. This is what you'll need for adding the license to DB2 9.7.
