Error description

  • When you run the setup command opn Windows to upgrade from DB2
    version 8 to DB2 9.5 or DB2 9.7 without the -u option, it ends
    up with the DB2 copy name as DB2COPY1 even if you choose some
    other DB2 copy name.
    
    The problem does not happen if you use the -u option of the
    setup command to use a response file (silent installation). The
    problem is only when you upgrade to DB2 9.5 or DB2 9.7 not when
    you upgrade to DB2 9.1.
    

Local fix

  • As a workaround you can do either of the following:
    - Use the -u option of the setup command to use a response file
    (silent installation).
    - Upgrade to DB2 9.1 first, then upgrade from DB2 9.1 to your
    desired DB2 version.
