DB2 ID Removal

Hi there,
We have an internal check to make our applications compliant, during installation of db2 there was id which was created called idbp23646, now this id is no loner into the OS Level. This id has also been removed from the DB2 level, but when we run an internal audit report we do find an entry stating as follows and also gives us recommendations that it need to be created from OS level. Upon research I did find that the id idbp23646 cannot be deleted due a fact attached in the jpeg file..,However if still someone could provide a solution to get rid of the id and the gap be closed without exception it would indeed be helpful.

Violation Reported : Check Violation Jpeg
Solution : Check Recommendation Jpeg

Kindly please SOS

Note : When I create idbp23646 on the OS the Problem gets solved, but that does not suffice as a solution

If any one could help

regards
Abdul H

Hi Hainduab,

In any system there must be a master (or owning) user.  Unix/Linux systems have the root account, Windows systems have the administrator account, etc.

When you install DB2, you do so with a user that has sufficient privilege to install the product, supporting libraries, and any utilities that may be required.  That is typically the same user that is used to create separated instances of DB2.

Trying to delete the account that essentially owns DB2 is impractical.  (I suspect that a security audit has found an "unused account" and you're scrambling to meet the criticisms of an audit.  If so, the correct solution is to tell the auditors that the account is necessary.)

For the record, can you explain why you feel it necessary to delete this account?
