Error description

  • When creating ESE instance by db2icrt command, DIAGPATH is
    changed to $HOME/sqllib/db2dump from the default
    path($HOME/sqllib/db2dump/ $m). RESET DBM CFG command can change
    it back to the default path($HOME/sqllib/db2dump/ $m). This
    problem occurs UNIX/Linux only.
    
    # ./db2icrt -s ese -u db2inst1 db2inst1
    DBI1446I  The db2icrt command is running.
    
    DB2 installation is being initialized.
    
    ...
    
    The execution completed successfully.
    
    # su - db2inst1
    $ db2 get dbm cfg | grep \(DIAGPATH
    Diagnostic data directory path               (DIAGPATH) =
    /home/db2inst1/sqllib/db2dump/
    
    $ db2 reset dbm cfg
    DB20000I  The RESET DATABASE MANAGER CONFIGURATION command
    completed
    successfully.
    
    $ db2 get dbm cfg | grep \(DIAGPATH
    Diagnostic data directory path               (DIAGPATH) =
    /home/db2inst1/sqllib/db2dump/ $m
    

Local fix

  • "update dbm cfg using DIAGPATH NULL" can change it back to the
    default path.
