Quick Beginnings for DB2 Extended Enterprise Edition for UNIX

Before You Begin

Before you begin installing DB2 products using the DB2 Installer program, you need to gather the following information:

Where is the CD-ROM mount point?
You need to mount the CD-ROM before you can install the DB2 product. To mount the CD-ROM, you must know where the mount point is. For example, the CD-ROM mount point could be /cdrom.

How much disk space does my operating system require for all selected products?
See "Estimating Fixed Disk Requirements" and "Server Components" to find out how much disk space is required for selected products and how to estimate disk space requirements.

How do I assign a group name and user name for a DB2 instance?
A separate user name must be used for each DB2 Instance. We recommend that a new group be created which should be used as a primary group for the DB2 instance user.
