Determine the instance name

You can determine the instance name in one of these ways:

  • By reviewing the DB2 log in this location:
    $INSTHOME/sqllib/db2dump/
  • By executing one of the following commands:

    On AIX:

    /opt/IBM/db2/V9.5/instance/db2ilist
    /opt/IBM/db2/V9.5/instance/db2ilist

    On Linux:

    /opt/ibm/db2/V9.5/instance/db2ilist
    /opt/ibm/db2/V9.7/instance/db2ilist
