This module installs db2 on Linux.

Module Description

This module will generate a db2 installer response file, and install db2 on Linux. It has only been tested with DB2 Express v10 on Centos7.


Beginning with db2

This module expects that the db2 installation source is available to the host. This can be accomplished with any external module for staging binaries.


The param 'installer_source_dir' expects to find the folder ./exp. For example, if "/root" is specified, than this should exist: "/root/exp/db2"

class {'db2':
  instance_user_password => 'mypass',
  fenced_user_password   => 'mypass',
  password_salt          => 'random phrase',
  installer_source_dir   => '/root',


Please see the individual manifest files for additional parameters.


This has only been tested with:

  • DB2 Express v10 on Centos 7.
  • DB2 Express v11 on Centos 7.


This module includes a Vagrantfile for easy testing.


  1. Install Vagrant.
  2. Install Virtualbox.
  3. Clone this repo.
  4. Stage the db2 binaries.
  5. Run vagrant up.

Staging the binaries

The db2 installer file must be extracted, and db2setup must reside in ./puppet-db2/vagrant/v10/exp/db2setup.

The folder structure must look like the following:


To stage the DB2 media, make a folder in the repo root called "vagrant", and ensure that the folder structure looks like: ./puppet-db2/vagrant/v10/exp/db2.
