Error description

  • If there is UNC reference in the PATH env variable then db2
    setup.exe will fail with error:
    
    "DB2 Setup has detected a Universal Naming Convention path
    reference (ie. entry of the form \<computer name>\<share name>)
    in the PATH environment. You must remove this entry or change it
    to a mapped drive before you will be able to complete this
    install"
    
    We will be looking for opportinity to create a new response file
    keyword to skip the checking for existance of the UNC path.
    

Local fix

  • Map UNC to the network drive or put install image on the UNC
    path and install from there.
