In order to explore the new features and capabilities of IBM Endpoint Manager 9.0, lets quickly create a POC image. Before you start creating a POC image, its recommended to read these tutorials: How to create a YUM repository from an ISO image or mounted CD and Installing TEM 9.0 on Linux
http://software.bigfix.com/download/bes/90/ServerInstaller_9.0.649.0-rhel.tgz . This archive doesn't contain the installer for IBM DB2 10.x. For the purpose of demonstration ( exploring TEM features or creating a quick POC ) , you can download the FREE version of DB2 from http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/downloads/im/db2express/index.html . Ensure that you download the Linux 64-bit version of IBM DB2 10.1.2 Express-C edition. DB2 Express-C is a full function DB2 data server available for download, and deployment at no charge.
Create a VM with RHEL6.1 ( RHEL 6.2 , RHEL 6.3 are also supported ) typical installation.
Ensure that a valid hostname and IP is assigned to the VM.
Now configure the YUM repository as mentioned here
Install the per-requisite packages for TEM:
Now extract the downloaded DB2 package, and run the db2prereqcheck utility. Check for failed errors and warnings.
Shown below the list of dependencies:
Now install TEM 9.0 as per the steps mentioned here.
I've tried installing the Evaluation version of TEM 9.0 for Linux on RHEL 6.1 (Santiago) with Free version of IBM DB2 10.1.2 Express-C and it works perfecting fine. Good for creating Proof of Concepts and customer demos. This installation appears to work on CentOS 6.3 also, although it is not supported by IBM.
