Error description

  • If you want  to do a silent upgrade and you forget to set
    UPGRADE_PRIOR_VERSIONS to true in your response file, the
    upgrade will be treated as a new installation and will continue
    without error.  As a consequence, in the Add/Remove program,
    there will be two entries for the DB2 product with the same
    DB2COPY name : one for the old version and one for the new
    version.
    
    To avoid this issue, please use the recommended method for
    upgrade : use UPGRADE_PRIOR_VERSIONS=YES in the response file.
