Error description

  • Installing/Uninstalling a DB2 fixpack on RHEL 6 platform
    succeeds with  a minor error while stopping the fault monitor
    
    Description : Updating existing DB2 instances
    Task #31 end
    
    A minor error occurred during the execution.
    
     The trace shows we fail while stopping the fault monitor as we
    are using the old method of stopping it on RHEL 6

    /opt/ibm/db2/V10.1/bin/db2fmcu -d -f /etc/inittab 1>

    20724  ||| URELogObserver::writeLine 10 -DATA-  , STRING =
    Stopping DB2 Fault Monitor :.......Failure
    
    In this case, the db2fmcd process may still be running. It can
    be stopped by issuing the "initctl stop db2fmcd" command on RHEL
    6.
