Installation of DB2 fails while silently installing IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) in a non-English locale

Troubleshooting


Problem

During a silent installation of IBM Business Process Manager in a non-English locale, the installation of DB2 fails and an error message is logged in the db2install.log file indicating that the administrator user name does not satisfy the naming rules for DB2.

Cause

The installation of DB2 fails if the naming rules for DB2 are not adhered to. For example, if the user name passed to DB2 during installation contains non-English characters, the installation will fail.

Resolving The Problem

Ensure that all parameters passed to DB2 during installation follow the DB2 general naming rules. The user name that you log in as when performing the installation must also follow the DB2 general naming rules. The general naming rules for DB2 can be found here:
