Post Install Steps

Required steps:

You have enabled DB2 extended Windows security. You must add DB2 users that need to run DB2 local applications or tools to either the DB2 administrators group or DB2 users group.

You can connect to the DB2 instance “DB2” using the port number “50000”. Record it for future reference.

Optional steps:

To validate your installation files, instance, and database functionality, run the Validation Tool, C:\Program Files\IBM\SQLLIB\bin\db2val.exe. For more information, see “db2val” in the DB2 Information Center.

You should ensure that you have the correct license entitlements for DB2 products and features installed on this machine. Each DB2 product or feature comes with a license certificate file (also referred to as a license key) that is distributed on an Activation CD, which also includes instructions for applying the license file. If you purchased a base DB2 product, as well as, separately priced features, you might need to install more than one license certificate. The Activation CD for your product or feature can be downloaded from Passport Advantage if it is not part of the physical media pack you received from IBM. For more information on licensing, search the Information Center ( using terms such as “licensing” or “db2licm”.

Verify that you have access to the DB2 Information Center based on the choices you made during this installation. If you performed a typical or a compact installation, verify that you can access the IBM Web site using the internet. If you performed a custom installation, verify that you can access the DB2 Information Center location specified during the installation.

Review the response file created at C:\Users\someone\Documents\PROD_EXPC.rsp. Additional information about response file installation is available in the DB2 documentation under “Response file installation of DB2 overview”.

Refer to “What's new” in the DB2 Information Center to learn about the new functions for DB2 V9.7.
