I'm trying to install db2 10.5 on Windows Server 2008 not as built-in "Administrator", but as another local user, but it fails to create instance with the symptoms similar to http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IC85663
First it complains it cannot create
DB2USERS groups (in fact, the groups appear after installer dies)
Then there's a another mesage:
The creation of the process for the partitioned instance failed. Return value is "4294965337".
I don't have Active Directory. All users are local. Here's how I create the user for installing db2:
net user db2installer s3cret /ADD net localgroup Administrators db2installer /add
I don's see any difference between "Administrator" and "db2installer". Perhaps "db2installer" should be added to some security policy?
