Error description

  • All hosts in the purescale cluster must  have an entry in
    sqllib_shared/.update or installFixPack could fail.
    
    For instance, if a cluster contains hosts vmcoralinst01 - 04,
    Db2 is installed in /opt/ibm/db2/install_dir, and all hosts are
    on Db2 Version 10.5.0.9, then the .update file should look
    something like the following:
    
    ```[root@vmcoralinst01 sqllib_shared]# cat .update
    vmcoralinst01.torolab.ibm.com=/opt/ibm/db2/install_dir_2:10.5.0.
    9
    vmcoralinst03.torolab.ibm.com=/opt/ibm/db2/install_dir_2:10.5.0.
    9
    vmcoralinst02.torolab.ibm.com=/opt/ibm/db2/install_dir_2:10.5.0.
    9
    vmcoralinst04.torolab.ibm.com=/opt/ibm/db2/install_dir_2:10.5.0.
    9```
    
    
    Executing purescale installFixPack on a host that is not in the
    .update file but is part of the purescale cluster could fail and
    some softlinks in sqllib will not be recreated because of this
