Error description

  • DB2 Installation does not work with SMS 2003 Advanced Client
    Environment, when it is launched from setup.exe.
    
    On SMS2003 advanced client system, the software installation is
    executed under the context of the SMS Client Token local
    Account, which caused the execution failure of setup.exe /
    wininst.exe.
    
    There is no failure return during installation it has a return
    code of 0(zero), but the product it not installed.
    

Local fix

  • Workaround:
    
    Use the msiexec to install DB2.
    
    Msiexec.exe is a Windows Installer executable. Its  parameters
    for install and uninstall are pretty general, not special for
    db2. Here are the sample command lines:
      // for install:      msiexec.exe /i [product install .msi
    file]
      // for uninstall:  msiexec.exe /x [product packageCode or
    product backup .msi]
    
    Note: You can find the [product packageCode] and [product's
    backup .msi] in the windows installer directory, eg.
    c:\windows\Installer.
    
    For more information about the msiexec command line options, you
    can check the following Microsoft's website:
          http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314881
    
    example:
    
    msiexec /i [xxxx.msi] /l*v [logFile] RSP_FILE_PATH=[rspFile]
    SILENT_MODE="ON" /qn
