vennirajan has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Dearest Monks,

I have a problem in installing the IBM DB2 client. This is what the error message says,

$> db2 catalog tcpip node ECOMTEST remote server +60000 db2flacc: symbol lookup error: db2flacc: undefined symbol: sqlogmblkEx SQL0965W There is no message text corresponding to SQL warning "512" +in the message file on this workstation. The warning was returned from modul +e " " with original tokens "".

Has any one faced this problem? Please help me in this regard. I am sticking with this issue for the past two days?

S.Venni Rajan.

    This doesnt seem to be a perl problem at all, or were you trying to install DBD::DB2?

    Anyway, the error you got means that somehow it cant find the localised version of the error message for SQL1512N, which is this:

    SQL1512N ddcstrc could not write to the specified file. Explanation: ddcstrc was not able to write the trace information to the filename th +at it has been instructed to write to. User Response: Ensure that the filename specified is valid for your file system. If a + filename is not specified, ensure that you have the necessary permis +sion to write to the default file ddcstrc.tmp.
    At a wild guess, it's trying to write to ~/sqllib/db2dump/db2diag.log, but it could be some other thing..


      Dear castaway,
      Thanks for your reply,
      I have tried by giving the full permissions to the user db2inst1 towards the /home/db2inst1 directory. But still i am getting this error. Any hint ?

    First off, your problem has nothing to do with perl. There are many good places to get DB2 help: from your local ISP's newsserver (or via google), IBM has its own newsserver ( which has DB2 groups on it, and IBM's developerworks has some forums, too, that are heavily monitored. I suggest going to one of these places (the first one is the easiest to go to, IMO). Or, if you're stuck, you can always open a PMR with IBM. I've heard good reports about IBM's help in situations like this.

    Second, it looks like you applied a fixpack and didn't follow the fixpack readme instructions. I would be more than happy to help you out with this - but only if you post to an appropriate forum. I don't think most of the monks are interested in this discussion, nor should they be.

    If, for example, you're having a hard time finding the readme, I'd give you the URL. But only in a DB2 newsgroup or forum. There's no need to pollute PM with such off-topic questions where there are perfectly good places where this would be completely on-topic.
