  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • DBI1327E error message indicates that the db2icrt command failed
    because the home directory of the instance owner is a
    subdirectory under the directory in which the DB2 product is
    installed. In some cases, however, this message is returned when
    the path name of DB2 installation directory is a substring of
    the instance owner home directory.
    
    For example, if the DB2 installation path is /usr/local/UDB/db2
    and the DB2 instance home path is /usr/local/UDB/db2inst1, the
    DBI1327E error message will be returned at inopportune times.
    

Local fix

  • Modify the instance home directory or installation directory.
