DB2 - Problem description

Problem IC66187 Status: Closed

"MULTIPLE PRODUCTS" INSTALLATION SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED BY
"DB2_INSTALL" COMMAND IN INTERACTIVE MODE

product:
DB2 FOR LUW / DB2FORLUW / 950 - DB2
Problem description:
When you launch "db2_install" without any parameters, it starts 
in interactive mode and you will see the following message: 
====================================================== 
Specify one of the following keywords to install DB2 products. 
 
  ESE 
  CONSV 
  WSE 
  CLIENT 
  RTCL 
====================================================== 
 
The displayed message clearly states that you must select only 
one product. 
However, if you enter more than one product,  for example "ESE 
RTCL" or  "CLIENT ESE", no error is returned and the 
installation will finish successfully. 
 
The result of selecting "multiple products" is unpredictable and 
you might find some files missing from the 
installation path. For example selecting "ESE RTCL" might result 
in the installation of "RTCL" only. 
 
After applying the fix provided by this APAR you will receive an 
error if you select "multiple products". You will not be able to 
enter more than one product.
