Error description

  • When applying a v9.5 IBM Data Server Runtime Client (RTCL)
    fixpak on a Windows machine, the fixpak upgrade install may fail
    with the message:
    
    "The DB2 setup Wizard was interrupted before IBM Data Server
    Runtime client could be completely installed."
    
    
    The root cause of the failure originates from the installer
    which fails at the function DB2SetDB2INSTANCECA,
    used to set the DB2INSTANCE during the install.
    This happens when the existing RTCL copy (at the lower fixpak
    level) does not have a DB2 instance when the Fixpack is
    installed.
    

Local fix

  • (1) Ensure that a DB2 instance exists in the RTCL copy before
        applying a fixpak on it.
        Use the command db2ilist to list existing
        instances in the RTCL copy. If no instance exists prior to
        the fixpack installation create one using the db2icrt
        command:       db2icrt <name of instance>
    
    (2) Since no db2 instance exists in the RTCL copy, there is no
        instance configuration needs to be kept.
    
        Install the RTCL at the higher fixpak to a new path.
    
        OR
    
        Uninstall the RTCL at the lower fixpak first, then install
        the RTCL at the higher fixpak level.

Problem conclusion

  • Problem was first fixed in version 9.5 FixPak 5 (s091123).  At
    minimum the fix should be applied to the client.
