IBM Security directory server 6.4 and db2 11.1, if you have issue creating istance .. read this post

IBM Security Directory server 6.4 with FP16 , released at the end of 2018,  has added support of db2 11.1 that's is an awesome news for IBM Connections customers because this match the same db2 version of Connections server .

Some  days ago this product has reached the FP18.

Here at this page , IBM has published the step by step guide to install and configure SDS 6.4 with this db2 release, but at point 9 there is an error that will probably points you to receive an error during the instance creation.

 In this step , admin have to check the file

usually available inside the following path

  • AIX: /opt/IBM/ldap/V6.4/etc/
  • Linux: /opt/ibm/ldap/V6.4/etc/
  • Windows: <SDS_V6.4_Install_Location>\etc\

updating /creating the following lines inside the file


I've followed this instruction and I've received an error due invalid db2 version while I was creating the ldap instance.

After a quick check of the same file I've edited the file as below


and than I was able to create the instance successfully !
Pay attention of the whole lines and their order..
