Restarting AIX

AIX shuts down and restarts to make all changes take effect.

  1. Shut down any processes that require a clean shutdown, for example SNA.
  2. Make sure you are not in the CD-ROM file system (check all your terminal sessions).
  3. Login as dtdb23in (su - dtdb23in) and type the following commands, pressing Enter after each one:
    1. db2 force applications all
    2. db2 terminate
    3. db2stop
    Wait until all DB2 processes have stopped (you can check this using the ps –ef | grep db2 command). The db2fmcd process will continue to run, but this does not cause any problems. If DB2 does fail to stop, use the command db2stop force.
  4. Login as root, type the following command, and press Enter:
    shutdown -Fr
