Run the database wizard in silent mode when you need an identical installation on multiple servers.
Before you begin
Ensure that the wizard has created the response.properties
file in the <user_settings>/lcWizard/response/dbWizard
To create a response file, run the wizard in standard mode and specify that you would like to create a response file. You can modify the existing response file or create your own, using a text editor. For more information, see the Database wizard response file
® only. If you are hosting IBM
on a single 32-bit system, you should create multiple DB2
instances. A single DB2
instance on a 32-bit system can manage a maximum of 2 GB of data in memory and this can become a constraint when you install multiple IBM
Connections applications. At a minimum, create two DB2
instances when you are installing all the applications, but also consider creating separate instances for the Activities and Communities databases because they are usually the most memory-intensive databases. Ideally, you would install one DB2
instance per IBM
Connections application. If you are hosting DB2
on a 64-bit system, you do not need to create multiple instances, provided the system has sufficient RAM.
About this task
To create databases in silent mode, complete the following steps:
- (DB2 on Windows® 2008 64-bit) On Windows 2008, you must perform DB2 administration tasks with full administrator privileges.
- Logged in as the instance owner, open a command prompt and change to the DB2 bin directory. For example: C:\Program Files\IBM\SQLLIB\BIN.
- Enter the following command: db2cwadmin.bat. This command opens the DB2 Command Line Processor while also setting your DB2 privileges.
- From the command prompt, change to the directory where the wizard is located.
- Launch the wizard by running the following command:
- AIX®: ./DbWizard30.sh -silent <response_file>
- Linux®: ./DbWizard30.sh -silent <response_file>
- Microsoft® Windows: DbWizard30.bat -silent <response_file>
where <response_file> is the file path to the response file.
Note: If the path to the response_file contains a space, this parameter must be enclosed in double quotation marks (").
What to do next
After the wizard has finished, check the log file in the <Lotus_Connections_set-up_directory>/Wizards/DBWizard
directory for messages. The log file name uses the time as a postfix. For example: dbConfig_20110308_202501.log.
