Error description

  • db2icrt fails with DBI1703E on a IPv6 only machine.  For
    example:
    
    db2icrt -a server -s ese -u db2fenc1 db2inst1
    
    ERROR:An error occurred while creating the instance "db2inst1".
    The return code is "1".  Create the instance manually using the
    command "db2icrt".
    
    ERROR:DBI1703E No valid service name or port number found.
    

Local fix

  • . install DB2 without creating instance
     . as root, create instance user id and home directory with Unix
    command/utility
     . as root, set DB2 global DB2FCMCOMM registry variable:
      <db2 installation directory>/instance/db2iset
    DB2FCMCOMM=TCPIP6 -g
     . run db2icrt to create instance
