The Linux agent plugin for monitoring DB2 instances (mk_db2) had a permissions issue when being deployed via the agent bakery. The plugin tried to call itself as a DB2 instance user, however, the directory where the plugin is located requires root permissions.

For this fix to come into effect, users have to re-bake and update the Linux agent for all affected systems.
