If you have used default settings while installing DB2 on AIX. You have created db2inst1 user to use and access DB2. This post is related to the scenario, when a root user have to execute a shell script containing a store procedure of DB2.

Create a shell script with following contents. Your every statement will be run with su to db2inst1.

su - db2inst1 -c 'db2 connect to customerdb user db2inst1 using admin'
su - db2inst1 -c 'db2 -tvsf /u01/IBM/workspace/addcustomer.sql'
