DB2 Warehouse V10.5 Known Issues

News


Abstract

This document contains the known issues for IBM DB2 Warehouse, Version 10.5 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows.

Content

IBM® DB2® Warehouse is a component of IBM DB2 Advanced Enterprise Server Edition V10.5, IBM DB2 Enterprise Server Edition V10.5, and IBM DB2 Advanced Workgroup Server Edition V10.5.
Oracle Compatibility Support

Issue: In Design Studio, a control or data flow that employs a table that is created in Oracle compatibility mode as a target or a data source, fails to execute.
User Response: Setup the SQL execution database with a database that is created in Oracle Compatibility mode. The reason for this is that during the flow execution process, a temporary table is created in the SQL execution database. Because the target or a data source table was created in Oracle Compatibility mode, so must the the SQL execution database.
For more information on the SQL execution database, see the DB2 Knowledge Center.

Issue: In the Administration Console, if a flow contains table source or table target operators that have the Location property set to Remote database and the selected table is created in Oracle compatibility mode, the flow fails.
User Response: No work around is available at this time.

Install

Issue: Starting in Version 10.5 Fix Pack 5, DB2 Warehouse supports Inspur Itanium K1 platform running Inspur K-UX. However, during installation a warning message informs the user that Inspur K-UX operating system was found on the computer and this operating system is not recommended for the components that are to be installed.
User Response: Ignore this warning message and continue with the installation. DB2 Warehouse supports Inspur Itanium K1 platform running Inspur K-UX. For details and the most up-to-date installation requirements for DB2 database products, see System requirements for IBM DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows (http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27038033).

Issue: DB2 Enterprise Server Edition V10.5.5 fails to un-install. If you installed DB2 Enterprise Server Edition and InfoSphere Federation Server Relational Wrappers by installing DB2 Warehouse 10.5 and then you upgraded to DB2 Warehouse V10.5.5, un-installing removes DB2 Warehouse V10.5.5, but does not remove DB2 Enterprise Server Edition V10.5.5.
User Response:
Solution 1: Before you uninstall DB2 Enterprise Server Edition by un-installing DB2 Warehouse V10.5.5, uninstall InfoSphere Federation Server Relational Wrappers.

Solution 2: To uninstall DB2 Enterprise Server Edition V10.5.5, after you uninstall DB2 Warehouse V10.5.5, complete the following steps:

  1. Generate a response file (db2ese.rsp) in the /root/dsw directory with the following content: REMOVE_PROD = DB2_SERVER_EDITION
  2. Run the following command:
    <user_install_folder> /db2/V10.5/install/db2_deinstall -r /root/dsw/db2ese.rsp .

Issue: The installation fails, despite no warnings or errors being displayed.
User Response: There may not be enough disk space to complete the installation. Re-install DB2 Warehouse, and during the installation, check the Pre-installation Summary pane for the amount of free disk space. Approximately 1.2 GB of disk space is recommended for the installation images of the data server components. If you plan to install the client components on the same computer, you will need a total of 2.5 GB of disk space.
For more information on installation requirements, see the DB2 Knowledge Center.

Issue: On Linux and AIX platforms, the installation fails, despite no warnings or errors being displayed.
User Response: There may not be enough disk space in the tmp folder to complete the installation. Re-install DB2 Warehouse, and during the installation, check the Pre-installation Summary pane for the amount of free disk space. Approximately 1.5 GB of disk space is recommended.
For more information on installation requirements, see the DB2 Knowledge Center.

Issue: On Windows 7 32-bit, Windows 8 32-bit, and Linux on X86 32-bit platforms the server images are for non-production use only.
User Response: 32-bit platforms are intended for development and test only. Please move to a 64-bit platform to take advantage of the full functionality of DB2 Warehouse.
For more information on system requirements, see the DB2 Knowledge Center.

Issue: DB2 Warehouse does not support installation on Windows 8.1 or on Windows 2012 R2 platform.
