I want to install DB2 10.5.6 DPF on my VMWare windows machine. I manually created the response files (both the server.rsp and addpart.rsp files).
When it came time to perform the server install, I issued the following on the DB2 command line: ./db2setup -l db2server_installlog.txt -t db2server_installtrace.txt -r db2server.rsp
What happened is that instead of the above command installing DB2 silently and unattended, the DB2 Install wizard and the attendant GUI is invoked and I am invited to make the very same choices that produced the the response files that I am trying to use in the first place!!
Can anyone help explain the strange behavior that I have on my hand? I have installed DB2 unattended with response files before now with no issues. The difference with this install is that I am trying to see if I can install DB2 with Data Partitioning Feature on a trial basis for educational purposes only. Could not having a valid license or officially endorsed trial DB2 DPF version be the cause of the weird install behavior?
Any and all assistance will be highly appreciated.
