    fail with DBI20000E on environments with many Network Shared
    Disks due to an internal db2icrt error.

    DBI20000E  A database manager instance could not be created as

    Updating global profile registry :.......Success
    
    The db2cluster command is invoked internally to set the
    tiebreaker disk but hangs due to an attempt to validate all NSD
    in the environment and subsequently prompts db2icrt to fail.
