APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • After you upgrade from DB2 9 to DB2 9.7, the CLI configuration
    file db2cli.ini is missing.
    

Local fix

  • As a workaround, take a backup copy of your CLI configuration
    file db2cli.ini before you upgrade.
    When you upgrade a DB2 copy from DB2 9 using the db2iupgrade
    tool, db2cli.ini might be saved in
    the directory sqllib_v91/cfg. If it is saved there then after
    running db2iupgrade you can copy the old db2cli.ini
    from sqllib_v91/cfg

Problem conclusion

  • Problem was first fixed in Version 9.7 Fix Pack 5.
    At a minimum, this fix should be applied on the DB2 installation
    which you upgrade to DB2 9.7.
    

Temporary fix

  • As a workaround, take a backup copy of your CLI configuration
    file db2cli.ini before you upgrade.
    When you upgrade a DB2 copy from DB2 9 using the db2iupgrade
    tool, db2cli.ini might be saved in the directory sqllib_v91/cfg.
    
    If it is saved there then after running db2iupgrade you can copy
    the old db2cli.ini from sqllib_v91/cfg
