I have been trying to install IBM DB2 10.5.0.1 on AIX 220.127.116.11 from a Windows 8-64bit using a Remote connection. It has been 3 days and I haven't been able to succeed; Here is a list of everything I've done so far:
- I have installed Putty on my Local Machine ( win-8, 64 bit)
- I have installed Xming
- I even installed Cygwin
I keep receiving the following error message after several unsuccessful trys to install the DB on the remote machine:
(The Tools) command-line, telnet, and relogin client have stopped working.
The Database file is zipped using tar format and I have already untarred it, and I want to attempt an install using the db2setup command, which as far as I understand starts the Installer Wizard.
I disabled my firewall, and am only connected to the remote AIX Server through my LAN. My LAN is also not connected to the internet.
I tried to run the following commands:
xclock and Xming separately from the command line of Putty and Cygwin. The result was an error.
I also tried to export the display with the command :
DISPLAY=127.0.0.1:0.0; export DISPLAY
DISPLAY=datapc:0.0; export DISPLAY
DISPLAY=localhost:0.0; export DISPLAY
After I tried once and the installation failed, I kept trying while adding new troubleshooting, and kept failing.
I am ready to start with a clean slate, so instead of trying to repair what I've done already, I'm looking for help from all of you regarding the BEST method. Id appreciate that!!
Thanks a lot !!
