See /var/tivoli/tsm/log.txt for details.
Note that the Tivoli Storage Manager server component is installed successfully, but the DB2 9.X component had errors and failed to be installed.
There can be many different reasons for such a failure during the DB2 installation, however, this document describes an issue with the permissions of the DB2 installation binaries on the install media.
Diagnosing the problem
Review the de_trace.log file located within the logs.zip archive generated by the installation failure at /var/tivoli/tsm/logs.zip. If the following error is contained in this file, then this document applies:
Caused by: java.io.IOException: Cannot run program "/tmp/COI/PackageSteps/DB2/FILES/ese/db2setup": java.io.IOException: error=13, Permission denied
Resolving the problem
Review the permissions of the DB2 installation files at the path referenced in the error:
# ls -la /tmp/COI/PackageSteps/DB2/FILES/ese
All of the files should have the execute (x) bit set. If they do not, then this is the cause of this failure.
The following command can be used to recursively set the files to have the execute (x) bit set:
# chmod -R +x /tmp/COI/PackageSteps/DB2/
After the permissions are properly set, rerun the Tivoli Storage Manager server installer to complete the DB2 installation.
