Error description

  • When a DB2 product is installed in a non-English language in a
    response file based silent install, eg,
       1). Install db2 on a machine where the default locale is not
    English. That language will be used as the install lang
       2). Launch install with the -i [lang] option to specify a
    different install language
    
    only the English language support components will be installed
    by default in the silent install, unless the keyword
    LANG=[installLang] is specified in the response file for the
    non-English install language.
    
    This behavior is not consistent with the GUI install, where the
    install language and English are chosen to be installed by
    default.
    

Local fix

  • To set the keyword LANG=[installLang] in the response file for
    the silent install.
