I'm trying to install DB2 Express-C on my PC (Windows 7 pro), but no matter how I've installed or configured it, I can't grant the ability to create databases to my windows domain account. No matter what I try, I get the error
SQL1092N my-windows-id does not have the authority to perform the requested command when I try to create a database.
My PC is centrally administered by my company, and I can't (permanently) create local acccounts on the PC. My domain account is in the local administrators group, and I've added my account to the DB2ADMNS group created during the DB2 install, but DB2 doesn't seem to be able to see that. I've spent about 12 hours going through the DB2 instructions and trying different things, but no matter what I've tried, DB2 won't allow my domain account to create databases.
I'm the only user of the PC and I'm not really concerned about security. I just need to get DB2 working in order to run some software that requires it. Is it possible to open up DB2 security and allow anyone to do anything? I tried changing the FED_NOAUTH config setting, but that didn't seem to have the desired effect.
