 Do I have to install UDB as root?
Hi,

Yes, I have read the Quick Beginnings, but I just want to make sure if
I do have to be root in order to install DB2/UDB on a Unix system.  
If that's the case, does IBM intend to change that?

Thanks

Yes, you must install as root, and no, IBM is not planning to change
that.  Some of the DB2 executables are owned by root and have to be
that way for password checking and other reasons, so there is no way
to install other than as root.

To add to what Susan said: Once DB2 has been physically installed and an
instance has been created, you no longer need root authority - all
database administration can then be done from the instance owner's
account.

That said, there are some optional tasks (applying fixpacks, creating
filesystems) that will require root access.
