Error description

  • db2start fails with SQL1677N.
    
    The failure occurs due to when db2locssh is used to run the
    "samlicm -s" command to gather the TSA license output from the
    remote hosts and the output returned is in a language other
    than English.
    
    Here is an example showing the db2locssh output which is in a
    different language (Brazilian Portugese).
    
    root@srvdb201:/root> /var/db2/db2ssh/db2locssh root@srvdb201
    "/usr/sbin/rsct/bin/samlicm -s"

Local fix

  • As root set the LANG environment variable to English using the
    command below:
    $ export LANG=C
    
    Running the following command should then return the output in
    English:
    $ /var/db2/db2ssh/db2locssh root@remoteHost
    "/usr/sbin/rsct/bin/samlicm -s"
