APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When DB2 is autostarted during system startup, it attempts to
    start the licensing service, which is not allowed by Microsoft
    Windows SDK.  This results in a long wait while the attempt
    times out.
    

Local fix

  • The workaround is to disable license checking with this command:
    
    db2licm -p <product ID> OFF
    
    and then reboot the system.
    
    e.g. "db2licm -p db2exp OFF" disables license
    checking for DB2 Express Edition
