Hi,
I am facing problem with the database creation. Please provide some pointers regarding this, Thanks in advance.

Following are the details:

AIX 5.3 with Maintenance Level 3
DB2 8.2 Fix Pack 4.2

Command Details:

db2=> create database CMDB
SQL1088W The database was created, but an error occurred while binding the utilities. The utilities are not bound to the database.

db2=> CATALOG DATABASE CMDB
SQL6028N Catalog database failed because database "CMDB" was not found in the local database directory.

db2=> CONNECT TO CMDB
SQL1013N The database alias name or database name "TEST" could not be found. SQLSTATE=42705

db2=> LIST DATABASE DIRECTORY
System Database Directory

Hi amitkanodia,

This looks suspiciously like a space problem.

All three of your databases appear to exist in the default tablespace, which is in the /home directory.

The df command shows that /home contains 262144 blocks of 512 bytes.  That's 131MB, not GB.  And it's 82% used leaving about 24MB.  (You've probably got more than 131MB of RAM on the box and certainly have more than 24MB!)

Try creating the database again, this time on another device.

CREATE DATABASE CMDB on path {new location}

e.g.
CREATE DATABASE CMDB on path /usr/databases
CREATE DATABASE CMDB on path /tmp/test
etc.


Good Luck,
Kent

Hi kdo,

Thanks a lot for your help. I am able to create the database on different path.
i.e.
create database CMDB on /usr/databases
in the command specified by you "path" is not the part of the syntax. It is the variable that needed to replace with the actual path.

Once again thanks for the help.
Regards,
Amit Kanodia
