aix/udb newbie
Sorry, this may be a dumb question, but being only a mainframe db2
system programmer, I have been thrown into the UDB arena. I have
gotten a small stack of cd's. I have attempted to install UDB on an
AIX box not knowing AIX, I have fumbled through this. The UDB level is
6.1 without any fixpacks added. So my question is this what is the
proper procedures and how do I install the maintenance fixpacks. I
have gone out the to IBM web site and downloaded the zip file onto a
jazz drive. But do I need to unzip the file and upload it to the AIX
box or what??

I have searched manuals and archives but no luck.

Any help would be appreciated.

TIA

Sherri,

Do a binary FTP of the downloaded file from your PC/Jazz drive
to a file system on your AIX machine that has at least 250MB of free disk
space.

You should also do an ASCII FTP of the Fixpak.Readme file to the same
location.

Uncompress and un-tar the fixpack file (eg. U468276.tar.Z):
prompt> zcat < U468276.tar.Z | tar -xvf -

Follow the instructions in the Fixpak.Readme file, some of which must be
performed as the 'root' user and others as the instance owner user.

I, too, came from DB2 OS/390 originally, and in 1994 found myself baffled by
these things call AIX, vi, and grep. If I can be of further assistance, I
hope you'll contact me directly (see pager below) and we can go through it
together.

Best regards,
Scott
