Error description

  • The installation of the TSM 6.1 Server may fail with an error
    indicating that DB2 could not be installed due to a failed
    requirement for disk space.  The contents of the
    DeploymentPlan.log file will confirm the DB2 installation
    failure:
    .
       Started:   Deployment Step: step_00002_DB2_9.5
                  Machine Plan:    MachinePlan_localhost
    .
       Failed:    Deployment Step: step_00002_DB2_9.5
                  Machine Plan:    MachinePlan_localhost
    .
    The DB2_9.5.log file will indicate that the 'Req_disk_space'
    requirement had failed:
    .
       <failures>
         <requirementFailure>
           <rootIUTypeID UUID="61CFAC749FF2F18762B8843C11A3F961"
           version="9.5"/>
           <requirementName>Req_disk_space</requirementName>
         </requirementFailure>
       </failures>
    .
    This failure should not be occurring as the COI (Composite
    Offering Installer) does not need to perform the disk space
    check when installing DB2.
    .
    TSM Versions Affected:
    TSM 6.1
    .
    Initial Impact:
    Medium

Local fix

  • 1. cd to /<install_dir>/COI/DeploymentSteps/DB2_9.5/META-INF
          directory
       2. Remove from the packagedIU.xml file the following entries:
             <requirement name="Req_disk_space">
               <description>
                 <defaultLineText key="ReqDesc_Req_disk_space">
                 Disk space required.</defaultLineText>
               </description>
               <alternative name="Alt_disk_space">
                 <inlineCheck>
                   <consumption checkId="Check_disk_space"
                   targetRef="FS">
                     <description>
                       <defaultLineText
                       key="CheckDesc_Check_disk_space">
                       Check if disk space of 550 MB is available.
                       </defaultLineText>
                     </description>
                     <propertyName>availableSpace</propertyName>
                     <value>563200</value>
                   </consumption>
                 </inlineCheck>
               </alternative>
             </requirement>
       3. Save the packagedIU.xml file and retry the installation
