    DBT3514W The db2prereqcheck utility failed to find the following 32-bit library file: “/lib/libpam.so*”.
    hey ember I got same error as above and ended up without not able to start the instance. so again I have downloaded 32 bit libpam.so file and installed and create soft link to make db2start work again. Am able to start the instance only when I installed that 32 bit libraries.. So my question is didn’t you face the same issue and are you able to start instance without troubleshooting anything.?

      No, I had no remediations to do such as that. I assume you’re not using 32-bit instances(which only exist on certain platforms any more)? If you were, that would explain the difference.

      That particular file would also be used for LDAP, and I am indeed using transparent LDAP on the server where I did this example work, but I keep all of my instance and system ids as local ids. Perhaps your instance id is an LDAP id?

    i’m using 64bit Linux – UBUNTU 12.04 desktop version OS. Installed 64 bit DB2 V9.7 fixpack 6 on top of it. I’m not using LDAP authentication or such. My id are locally created. After going through many blogs, i see that libpam.so.0 (32-bit) is required for DB2 database servers to run 32-bit non-SQL routines. Link for publib states it clearly needs 32 bit libpam as required prerequisties for installation of DB2 V9.7 64 bit – data server.

    Another incredibly helpful tip from Ember. It’s a scandal that the official DB2 documentation doesn’t provide such a clear and concise demonstration for the sort of post-installation adjustments that most DB2 DBAs will eventually need to perform.
