DBI1080E Disk full. Minimum space required in /opt is 549372 KB, whereas only 194702 KB space is available.

There is not enough free space available in the file system or
directory.

Hi,

It looks like DB2 wants to install to /opt by default. According to your df output, /opt should be located on /dev/hda5, which does not have enough space (190MB where you need at least ~540, plus space for your data).

I would recommend installing to /usr, as this is located on a different partition (which has 17 Gigs available). As I don't know DB2 specifically, you will need to check the documentation for how to change the install directory.

Alternatively, you could try using symbolic links from /opt to /usr, but I think that will get a bit messier.

Hope this helps!
