Error description

  • If you have 2 versions of DB2 on the same machine configured
    correctly for autostart (DB2AUTOSTART set to yes), only the
    latest version will autostart due to library incompatibility
    with the old version.  Even if the instance is migrated from a
    lower level, the newly migrated instance will autostart, but the
    older ones will not. The fix for APAR IZ45208 will resolve this.
    
    There should only be 1 entry (latest DB2 version) in
    /etc/inittab.  The db2fmcu is then expected to start all the
    other instances (same version AND older versions of DB2) on the
    same machine. However due to this APAR, the older versions of
    DB2 will not autostart.
    
    The solution is to upgrade the most current DB2 version
    (whichever one has is in the /etc/inittab) to the fixpack that
    contains the fix to resolve it.

Problem summary

  • Users Affected : All
    Problem Description :
       DAS instance is not auto started after reboot despite correct
    DASAUTO settings are in place.
    Problem Summary :
    This defect is due to a change introduced by APAR IZ45208 and it
    applied to DAS instances only. DB2 instances are not affected
    and can be successfully autostarted after reboot.
    If db2fmcd is at level containing IZ45208 then the above symptom
    may occur.
