More on automation - this time it's the DB2 UDB 9.7.0.2 fixpack ....

Following on from my earlier posts: -

Following the script - installing IBM DB2 UDB using a response file ( silent installation )
Validating a successful DB2 UDB installation

I've also run through the process to automate the deployment of the 9.7.0.2 fix pack ( other fix packs are available ).

Unpack the fixpack

$ mkdir /tmp/fixpack
$ cd /tmp/fixpack
$ tar xvzf ~/v9.7fp2_linuxx64_universal_fixpack.tar.gz

Check the installed level

$ /tmp/fixpack/universal/db2ls

Install Path                       Level   Fix Pack   Special Install Number   Install Date                  Installer UID
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
/opt/ibm/db2/V9.7                 9.7.0.1        1                            Mon Jun  4 20:03:18 2012 BST             0

$ /opt/ibm/db2/V9.7/bin/db2level

DB21085I  Instance "db2inst1" uses "64" bits and DB2 code release "SQL09071"
with level identifier "08020107".
Informational tokens are "DB2 v9.7.0.1", "s091114", "IP23034", and Fix Pack
"1".
Product is installed at "/opt/ibm/db2/V9.7".


Install the fix pack

$ /tmp/fixpack/universal/installFixPack -b /opt/ibm/db2/V9.7

The execution completed successfully.

For more information see the DB2 installation log at

"/tmp/installFixPack.log.5821".

$ cat /tmp/installFixPack.log.5821

Cheers Dave, I was using ./installFixPack -b /opt/IBM/db2/db2inst1/sqllib/ which was failing.
