Error description

  • Running db2iupgrade/db2iupdt to complete a upgrade, fixpak or
    special build
    installation may return
    
    DBI1250E Applications are still using instance <instance name>
    
    despite the fact that the instance was shutdown and it's
    proven that there are no db2 processes active anymore.
    
    This issue may be caused by a too low timeout value (10 seconds)
    currently used in function "chk_instance_stopped" in the
    db2iutil script which is called by db2iupdt. It's likely to be
    seen when updating a large DPF instance (large = number of
    partitions in db2nodes.cfg).
    
    If this issue applies in your environemnt run the db2gcf utility
    standalone:
    
    $ timex <DB2INSTALLPATH>/bin/db2gcf -i <instance> -s -t 10 -L
    
    and check if the command returns:
    
    db2gcf Error : GCF Module function failed.
    
    and needs more than 10 seconds to complete.
    Then you are affected by this APAR.
    

Local fix

  • Can edit the <DB2 Installation>/instance/db2iutil and remove the
    -t 10 from the call to db2gcf command checks.
