DB2 Control Center launch issue on Windows 2008 Server
April 30, 2012 Leave a comment
I came across an issue recently where the DB2 Control Center was hanging when trying to start it on a Windows 2008 Server. The splash screen would appear and then just sit there. Looking at Task Manager I could see a process – db2javit.exe – consuming nearly 100% of the CPU so I decided to kill it before it became an issue (thankfully the server was not in production at this stage) at which point the DB2 Control Center started.
After a couple more tests I discovered that, rather than killing the db2javit.exe process to get the Control Center to load, if I right-clicked on the DB2 Control Center icon and selected ‘Run As Administrator’ it loaded without an issue.
