Error description

  • Db2iupgrade will hang forever during the DB2 ACS upgrade step,
    when special files are located in the sqllib/acs directory. The
    following process in the ps output will never come to an end:
    
    /usr/bin/cp -prf /db2/XXX/sqllib_v97/acs /db2/XXX/sqllib
    
    This happens, when the sqllib/acs directory contains special
    files like named pipes.
    
    In addition, symbolic links are not copied correctly to the
    destination directory as well.
