APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When you try to do a silent installation by running the setup
    command with the -u option, if you also use the -p option to
    specify an installation path with a backslash "\" at the end
    then the installation does not work but returns immediately to
    the command prompt outputting no message.
    
    If you also use the -l option to generated an installation log,
    the installation log file is zero-length.
    

Local fix

  • As a workaround, remove the backslash ("\") at the end of the
    installation-path that you specify using the -p option.
    
    For example, rather than a command like:
     setup -m -u DB2.RSP -p C:\MYINSTALL\
    run a command like this instead:
     setup -m -u DB2.RSP -p C:\MYINSTALL

Problem conclusion

  • Problem was first fixed in Version 9.5 Fix Pack 6
    

Temporary fix

  • As a workaround, remove the backslash ("\") at the end of the
    
    installation-path that you specify using the -p option.
    
    For example, rather than a command like:
    
    setup -m -u DB2.RSP -p C:\MYINSTALL\
    run a command like this instead:
    setup -m -u DB2.RSP -p C:\MYINSTALL
