SQLLIB directory was deleted

Hi Experts.

Wahat happend if the sqllib directory was deleted by error?
How can I fix this problem.
AIX Administrators don't have any backup of the instance owner.
In this case the instance is corrupted?

what error messages are you receiving?

I don't receive any error mesage, just I don't see the sqllib directory and any db2 command dont work.
As root,

Try "db2iupdt <instance>" from the installation directiory (usually /opt/IBM/db2/Vxx/instance

If the above doesn't work (mostly it wouldn't ), try the following

# cd <DB2DIR>/instance
1, Drop the instance
./db2idrop <instance> -f

2,Create the instance
./db2icrt <instance>

3) Update the DBM CFG with required parameters (such as SVCENAME)

4) re-catalog the database using the db path
Catalog database <dbname> on <path>

As long as the database is not dropped or removed, you can get back your instance easliy. You will have to update the DBM CFGs for any non-default settings and re-catalog the database entries though
