Post Upgrade Activity: db6_update_db script

Hi Experts,

I've already upgraded db2 version from 9.1 to 9.7 but I am stuck in post upgrade activity where I need to run the db6_update_db script.

Question to this procedure: "Copy the file db6_update_db.bat (Windows) from the relevant operating system folder on the database DVD to a temporary directory (<temp_dir>)."

Is the <temp_dir> can be any directory? If not, what specific directory that I need to save the db6_update_db script?

I've tried to create a directory and save the script but when I issue the command I've got this error:

JAVA could not be found on the maschine

Please make sure that the DB2PATH environment variable is set to the installation directory of the DB2 software or set DB6_UPDATE_DB_JAVA to the full qualified path of your java.exe

I've tried this with different access like administrator, db2<dbsid> and <sapsid>adm but I have no luck.

Can anyone help me?
