Error during the System Copy (Heterogeneous)


OS: Aix 6.1
DB: DB6 (DB2 LUW) 9.7 (9.07.0005)

I´m performing a heterogeneous system copy. For this I´m using the Sofware Provisioning Manager SP18 (SWPM) and I´m open it with the <sid>adm.

But unfortunatelly I´m with the following error during the SWPM and I don´t know how to solve it. Can you check the last lines of the following sapinst.log file, please?


INFO 2016-12-20 17:09:46.620 (quaadm/sapsys)

Can you help me please? Any tips? How can I solve this error?

I believe that everything would be solved if I run this with root user but unfortunatelly I can start the X window (xclock) with the root user therefore I can't open the SWPM with the root user! When I try this it show me always the following message:

/home/root# xclock
Xlib: connection to "localhost:12.0" refused by server
Xlib: MobaXterm X11 proxy: Unsupported authorisation protocol

Error: Can't open display: localhost:12.0

Can you help me please?... this is urgent!

Best regards,

    Hi Joao,

    The most likely reason you are getting this error is that the existing instance was not installed by root. You can check by, logged in as the instance owner, running: #db2greg -dump Look for the lines starting with a capital "S". You can find out which user installed the system.If you have a non root uid in that column (check who it is in /etc/passwd), then your install is a non-root install and running the process as root will be disallowed.
