Error description

  • DB2 non-root fixpack update using installFixPack not replacing
    the files in the security directory during upgrade to V10.5 FP4
    and above. The symptoms are errors in db2diag.log or db2 trace
    surrounding programs/files that reside in the sqllib/security
    directory.
    
    It can affect DB2 auditing, DB2 instance level operations that
    require SYSADM privilege and user authentication that requires
    the db2ckpw executable.
    Example:
    
    db2 connect
    db2 update dbm cfg
    db2 update database catalog
    db2set
    

Local fix

  • Copy the content of $DB2PATH/sqllib/security64 to
    $DB2PATH/sqllib/security
