"DBI1060E  Invalid package name ESE" error during db2_install

Technote (FAQ)


Question

In V10.5 you might run into the following error when running db2_install with '-p' option.

$ ./db2_install -b /opt/IBM/db2/V10.5 -p ESE

DBI1324W  Support of the db2_install command is deprecated. For more information, see the DB2 Information Center.

DBI1060E  Invalid package name ESE.

Explanation:

An incorrect name has been entered. The package either does not exist or the name has been entered incorrectly.

The db2_install Information Center says to look into the provided ComponentList.htm file to check for the 'Short Name' when using -p option. However, looking into this file you will see the following:

DB2 Server Edition
Product Short Name: ESE
Product Response File ID: DB2_SERVER_EDITION

You would see the same error for any other editions.




Cause

Starting from V10.5 there has been a change to only use short name 'SERVER' when specifying for -p option.

Answer

The ComponentList.htm file has not been modified to show SERVER as a short name. This will be addressed in future V10.5 fixpack releases.

As shown below, use SERVER as -p input:

$ ./db2_install -b /opt/IBM/db2/V10.5 -p SERVER
