Error description

  • The DB2 copy was installed using a response file that performs
    just the copy installation.
    With this response file DB2 extended security is NOT being
    enabled, and no default instance is being created.
    
    While the product installed correctly,  afterwards unable to
    perform either db2icrt (to create a new instance) or to invoke
    db2set:
    - db2icrt reported rights issue trying to create the instance
    directory, but both my user  and the instance user have
    administrative rights
    - db2set crashes
    
    -------------
    The keyword that seems to have caused it  was NO_CONFIG=YES.
    
    Without that keyword everything is good and registry keys are
    all set , but when  added to my response file  some registry
    keys are missing, DB2_EXTSECURITY , etc.
    

Local fix

  • remove NO_CONFIG from response file
