IC78338: DB2PREREQCHECK ADD CHECK FOR LIBPAM

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • This APAR adds a pre-requisite check to ensure that libpam*
    (Pluggable Authentication Module) has been installed on the
    system before DB2 is installed.  This affects Linux, Oracle
    Solaris and HP-UX platforms.
    
    Most customers will not experience this issue because they will
    be running 64-bit DB2 instances which will usually have libpam*
    installed.  Customers running 32-bit non-SQL routines are more
    likely to hit this issue since some operating systems such as
    Redhat 6.0 and higher do not install the 32-bit Pluggable
    Authentication Module library by default.
