APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • FixPack installer overrides extended security settings to use
    default groups, DB2ADMNS and DB2USERS.
    Users can specify different group names from default ones at
    product installation time, for instance, MYADMNS and MYUSERS.
    However DB2 sets default DB2ADMNS and DB2USERS groups after
    applying fixpack.
    

Local fix

  • db2extsec can be used to revert back to original settings, like
    as below:
    db2extsec -a MYADMNS -u MYUSERS
    Note: db2extsec fails with SQL1046N if users hit IZ12929. In
    this case db2set can be used to revert back to registry
    settings.
    db2set DB2_ADMINGROUP=MYADMNS
    db2set DB2_USERSGROUP=MYUSERS
