Creating user group accounts for DB2

Three user group accounts are required on each node in the cluster.

To create the group accounts on each node in the cluster on Linux

  1. Create a group for the DB2 UDB instance owner. For example, enter:
    # groupadd -g 999 db2iadm1
  2. Create a group for the user to execute fenced user-defined functions (UDFs) or store procedures. For example, enter:
    # groupadd -g 998 db2fadm1
  3. Create a group for the database administration server. For example, enter:
    # groupadd -g 997 dasadm1
