Error description

  • The DB2 installer attempts to only update the Tivoli SA MP
    product if the permanent license is available in the license
    sub-directory of tsamp.
    
    You can find out what type of license is available by following
    the steps below:
    /home/db2inst1/ese/db2/solaris/tsamp/license # ls
    sam31tb.lic
    /home/db2inst1/ese/db2/solaris/tsamp/license #  grep TryAndBuy
    sam31tb.lic
    TryAndBuy=Yes
    
    During the DB2 install or fix pack update, the Tivoli SA MP
    update will fail with the following error in the log file:
    WARNING: The DB2 installer could not automatically upgrade the
    IBM Tivoli System
     Automation for Multiplatforms (SA MP). The SA MP version
    "3.1.0.1" installed on
     your system has a permanent license while the SA MP version
    "3.1.0.6" on the installation media has a Try and Buy license.
    To upgrade the SA MP, see the DB2 Information Center at:
    "http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/db2luw/v9r7/topic/com.
    ibm.db2.luw.qb.server.doc/doc/t0051360.html"
    
    Since version 3.1.0.6 is a fix pack update to 3.1.0.1, the
    license is not necessary.
    
    After applying the fix, Tivoli SA MP fix pack updates can be
    applied automatically without the need for the permanent
    license.
