How to : install DB2 10.1 on Windows Server 2012 R2 in case of error Info 2896.Executing action ValidatePanelCA failed.

This weeks i was working on a new IBM Connections 5 setup, in this case on Windows server 2012R2 and i got trouble with DB2 interactive setup that was interrupted before installation start.

On install log i could see the following errors.

Action 11:07:29: ValidatePanelCA.
Action start 11:07:29: ValidatePanelCA.
Action ended 11:07:30: ValidatePanelCA. Return value 3.
Info 2896.Executing action ValidatePanelCA failed.
Action ended 11:07:30: InstallWelcome. Return value 3.
Action 11:07:30: SetupCompleteError.
Action start 11:07:30: SetupCompleteError.
Action 11:07:30: SetupCompleteError. Dialog created
Action 11:17:34: CleanUpGUISequenceCA.
Action start 11:17:34: CleanUpGUISequenceCA.
Action ended 11:17:35: CleanUpGUISequenceCA. Return value 1.
Action ended 11:17:35: SetupCompleteError. Return value 2.
Action ended 11:17:35: INSTALL. Return value 3.

After that I've also tried to generate the setup response file it wan't also work and the file wasn't generated.

After some search on blogs and forum i've read about similar issue on Windows 8 and DB2 10.1 client, solved with silent install so i tried to generate the response file in a different Windows 2008R2 server and use that here on 2012R2  with following  command line

C:\Temp\ESE\image>setup -u c:\Temp\ESE\image\PROD_ESE.rsp -l c:\Temp\ESE\image\s

And in this time the setup was able to run and Finish correctly !!

MSI (s) (D0:98) [09:43:42:679]: Product: DB2 Enterprise Server Edition - DB2COPY1 -- Installation operation completed successfully.

Aftert this i was able to update DB2 to 10.1 FP4 without issue using the DB2 universal fixpack
