Encountered the following error during Performance Analysis for DB2 agent installation
+ ERROR: +
+ The monitored instance version (N/A) is not supported by the Performance +
+ Analysis Agent. +
+ Please select a different instance. +
Agent fails to read data from the file : /db2home/mssadm/sqllib/.ftok
It was found that the file size was 0 byte.
The .ftok file is generated based on the current time and other information. When starting the instance, DB2 reads the .ftok file and creates a standard interprocess communication key (IPC key) which is later supplied to other subroutines for memory allocation. Without the ftok Performance Analysis for DB2 cannot complete the installation.
Regenerate the .ftok file using the following steps or contact IBM directly.
mv .ftok .ftok.old
