Updage v8 fp2 : out of disk error - IBM DB2

    Default Updage v8 fp2 : out of disk error

    I wish to apply version 8 Fix Pack 2, to a Win2003 machine running DB2
    Connect EE (v8 GA) in order to get to v8.1.2.

    I have limited free space on the C drive, less than 1 GB .
    I have a lot of free space on D drive. I have installed DB2 Connect on D,
    I have placed the fp2 files on D.

    When I run the update.exe of fp2 (even tried unzipping it first and running
    the winsetup.exe from D), it creates numerous (and huge) temporary work
    files. These files are directed to drive C:\doents and settings... This
    causes my out of disk space error.

    How can I apply fix pack and have the temp files directed to drive D ? or
    not on C at least ?


    TIA,

    Ray

    At present I believe that you cannot do anything else - but free more disk
    space on C: - by temporarily moving directories/files not currently in use
    for the duration of FP2 installation to D:

    There is nothing else you can do - I am afraid.

    The Microsoft installer we use for fixpaks takes up a lof disk space, so
    for FP1 and FP2, you have no choice but to follow Jan's advice. We're
    hoping to solve this problem in FP3, which is available soon (withing
    1-2 weeks, I hope).

    Hi Ray,

    From a DOS command, set TMP and TEMP to another drive location. Then launch
    the update.exe.
    [url]http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21112559[/url]

    You might have to check the WINNT\Installer directory, that could contain
    TWICE the unpacked update.exe file (a .msp file). If you remove those files,
    you'll get in trouble to remove the DB2 product and will have to play with
    the registry (that happened to me). I did remove one file, the oldest of the
    2 files, and saved only the file names.

    Hope this helps.
