  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When using the locale ZH_TW, the TSA may fail to upgrade without
    showing an error message in the log file. This may be the case
    when the TSA license installed on the system is permanent while
    the license available on the image is a try & buy license.
    
    After applying the fix, you will see the message in the log
    file, translated to the current locale:
    
    "The DB2 installer could not update the IBM Tivoli System
    Automation for Multiplatforms Base Component (SA MP Base
    Component) from the currently installed version 2.2.0.7 to the
    version 3.1.0.6 on the DB2 install media. Upgrading from this
    particular older version to this particular newer version is not
    supported. For information about manually upgrading the SA MP
    Base Component, see the SA MP Base Component Installation and
    Configuration Guide at
    http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21433814"
