I have very little DB2 experience.

I've just installed DB2 9.7 FP4 on Win2008R2x64 using a Domain account having local Admin privileges. (setup.exe "Run as Administrator").

Selected Server authentication. Local Groups and accounts for DB2 were created.

Added domain account to local DB2ADMNS and DB2USERS.

I tried almost all possible values and combinations for DB2_GRP_LOOKUP (local, token, domain) but could not create a database.

Got the error : SQL1092N  "SVC_USER  " does not have the authority to perform the requested command or operation.

I suppose logging on windows as DB2Admin will create the database ok, also if I start the DB2 instance as the domain SVC_USER, will allow database creation but I do not want to try either.

Need a way to be able to create databases using the SVC_USER domain account.
