DB2MSCS with 1 physical and three logikal disks - IBM DB2

How can I run db2mscs to set instance profile on a special logical disk of three defined on a physikal disk. I tried this: ###################### DISK_NAME=Datenträger Q: F: Z: INSTPROF_DISK=Z: ###################### But after running I found the Profile on Q: "Datenträger Q: F: Z:" ist the name of the phsical disk Thanks Klemens...

    Default DB2MSCS with 1 physical and three logikal disks

    How can I run db2mscs to set instance profile on a special logical disk of
    three defined on a physikal disk.
    I tried this:
    ######################
    DISK_NAME=Datenträger Q: F: Z:
    INSTPROF_DISK=Z:
    ######################
    But after running I found the Profile on Q:
    "Datenträger Q: F: Z:" ist the name of the phsical disk

    Thanks

    I'll assume you've mistyped the error message ("Datenträger Q: F: Z:" ist
    the name of the phsical disk", and it should be "Datenträger Q: F: Z:" ISNT
    the name of the phsical disk"), otherwise "ist" = IS in English isn't an
    error but an oxymoron statement of fact. Under these assumption, review note
    1 below (explains the error message) and the example (shows the correct
    syntax for multiple disks).

    From the Admin Guide:

    DISK_NAME
    The name of the physical disk resources to be moved to the current groups.
    Specify as many disk resources as you need.
    Notes:


    1.. The disk resources must already exist.

    2.. When the DB2MSCS utility configures the DB2 instance for MSCS support,
    the instance directory is copied to the first MSCS disk in the group. To
    specify a different MSCS disk for the instance directory, use the
    INSTPROF_DISK parameter.

    Example:

    DISK_NAME=Disk E:
    DISK_NAME=Disk F:



    BTW, you may find it simpler to stick to a single drive letter, and use
    Windows 2000 dynamic disks to span multiple physical drives into a single
    logical drive letter. That way, you don't run out of drive letters.

    Mark,
    It should be:
    "Datenträger Q: F: Z:" is the name of the phsical disk.

    The problem is, that I don't want to place the instance profile at the
    quorum partition "Q:" which is a logical partion at the physical disk
    "Datenträger Q: F: Z:"(the only phsical disk I have for that cluster). "Z:"
    ist another logical partition at "Datenträger Q: F: Z:" that I want to use
    for the Database.

    Thanks
    Klemens

    I still don't understand what you're trying to say with "don't want
    partition Q" and "use partition [drive - Datenträger] Q". You do seem to be
    contradicting yourself (or maybe it's just your translation). I'm confused
    by your terms "Quorum partition Q:", "is a logical partition at the physical
    disk Datenträger Q: F: Z:"- which you define as "a physical disk" and "Z: is
    another logical partition at "Datenträger Q: F: Z:"

    The Instance Directory is specified by INSTPROF_DISK, whose syntax is as for
    DISK_NAME:
    INSTPROF_DISK=Disk Z:
    You have written:
    INSTPROF_DISK=Z:

    As stated in the doentation for INSTPROF_DISK:

    An optional parameter to specify an MSCS disk to contain the DB2 instance
    directory. If this parameter is not specified, the DB2MSCS utility uses the
    first MSCS disk that belongs to the same group as the instance directory.

    I suspect that you have a syntax error that's causing the parameter to be
    ignored. Or perhaps your as confused as I am by your description? Perhaps
    you could post the exact disk layout.

    Mark,
    Actually I don't have a system to try, but I will do it next time I have to
    install DB2 on an MSCS cluster.
    What I understand from your description is that INSTPROF_DISK does not
    support the Drive Letter but does support the Drive Name.
    Am I right?

    Thanks
    Klemens

    Yes, I'm suggesting you try the doented syntax.
