APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If db2iprune is used to specify an output path which contains
    the '-' character, the installer will attempt to prune the
    source image, instead of creating a newly pruned image in the
    path specified by -o.
    
    e.g.
    
    db2iprune -r /tmp/db2ese.prn -o /home/db2inst-1
    
    The above command will attempt to prune the image that contains
    the db2iprune tool.
    
    You can verify this by viewing the log file to see which path is
    shown for the "Target directory".
