Quick Beginnings for DB2 Extended Enterprise Edition for UNIX
To update a Version 5 single-partition instance to a
multipartition instance, perform the following steps. It is assumed
that you have already installed DB2 Extended Enterprise Edition on the
machines that you want to participate in this instance.
- Enable the Fast Communications Manager (FCM) for all instances. For
more information, see "Step 3. Enable the Fast Communication Manager" for AIX or "Step 5. Enable the Fast Communication Manager" for Solaris.
- Issue the db2iupdt command to update the instance to the
multipartition format. For more information, see "Updating Instances"
- Create the node configuration file. For more information, see "Step 5. Create the Node Configuration File" for AIX or "Step 8. Create the Node Configuration File" for Solaris.
- Make DB2 Extended Enterprise Edition available. For more
information, see "Step 6. Make DB2 Extended Enterprise Edition Available" for AIX or "Step 9. Make DB2 Extended Enterprise Edition Available" for Solaris.
- Update the Administration Server using the dasiupdt. For
more information see "Updating the Administration Server".
You will also have to reinstall the Control Center on any administrative
client if you want to use that client to administer the multipartition
After the instance is migrated to the multipartition format, any existing
databases will have partitions at each database partition server. In
addition, the default nodegroups are also created. For more information
on the default nodegroups, see "Nodegroups and Data Partitioning". For information about redistributing data to the new database
partitions, refer to the Administration Guide.
