To remove an instance, perform the following steps:
For example, you might want to save the database manager configuration file, db2systm, the db2nodes.cfg file, or user defined function or fenced stored procedure applications in INSTHOME/sqllib/function, where INSTHOME is the home directory of the instance owner.
||where DB2DIR||= /usr/lpp/db2_05_00||on AIX|
||= /opt/IBMdb2/V5.0||on Solaris|
and InstName is the login name of the instance.
Because INSTHOME is mounted, you only have to run the
db2idrop command once to remove the instance.
This step is optional since the instance owner and the instance owner group may be used for other purposes.
The db2idrop command removes the instance entry from the list of instances and removes the INSTHOME/sqllib directory.
