Strange SAPINST Problem with DB2 8.1 FP9 - sqllib dir not present in Home


Hi at all,

I create at the moment a system copy for R3 4.7 EXT2 via redirected restore. On the target machine I install the DB2 8.1 FP9 and it runs completly without any error.

As next step I install the SAP Central Instance using Inst. Master 620/640 Patch Collection (Label: 51033746) it works alos fine. It creates all the users and user enviroment setting.

And now I want to install the DB instance. The SAPINST Parameter Input Phase runs fine, whenn I start the installation service it runs also fine up to point DB Instance creation. The it stops with the following error:

FSL-04008 Unable to access application /db2/db2e01/sqllib/adm/db2set. No such file or directory

When I look to the db2e01 users home dir it is set to /db2/db2e01 ==> normal behavior

But the sub directory sqllib is completly missing!!!

I check the keydb.xml file for the parameters, all points to the correct home and insthome.

I also checked the sapinst_dev.log again and again, but I cant find the error. All runs perfectly.

I also run a find command on OS level for checking, if an other instdir is created through SAPINST, but nothing, only the files in the DB2 installation direcotry.

Can anybody help me for this problem???

Thanks a lot for reading!!!
