Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have two hard drives one with os(ubuntu) and other just etc4 formatted. I want to store my database on this second hard drive. I tried searching online but there are very few resources online. It will be really helpful if someone can tell me how to do it.

I'm guessing that you failed to find any help online because you really don't know what you're doing so here's some clues

  • Mount the second hard drive into your filesystem at a convenient location
    • The FSH is a good reference for where to locate your files.
    • The mount command will be needed
    • You'll need to update fstab too.

I don't know much (anything) about db2 but I found this document that'll probably be useful to youm, note how the author supplies a location for their database when creating it

db2 CREATE DATABASE mydb AUTOMATIC STORAGE YES ON '/home/db2inst1' DBPATH ON '/home/db2inst1' USING CODESET ISO-8859-2 TERRITORY SI COLLATE USING SYSTEM PAGESIZE 4096

I hope this puts you on the right path.
