50 DB2 Nuggets #37: Tech Tip - DB2 v10.5 LUW install change

Body

When installing DB2 Universal Database for Linux, Unix, and Windows version 10.5, the installation script no longer lists the "ESE" (Enterprise Server Edition) and "AESE" (Advanced Enterprise Server Edition) options as it did with earlier versions. They have both been replaced with the option of "SERVER". The other options have remained the same.

The reason for this is that whether you have "ESE" or "AESE" depends solely on the license you install (EG the actual libraries that are installed are the same). If you want to install "ESE" or "AESE", you would simply choose "SERVER", and then after the installation is complete, install the "AESE" or "ESE" license file using db2licm -a. Then when you do "db2licm -l", it will show the appropriate product.
