REORG Option to set Return Code for drain failure or deadline
At present we have to manually intervene every time a REORG fails with a DRAIN FAIL or DEADLINE hit, because the job finishes with RC8. However, these scenarios are both common and expected BAU situations - so we would like to handle them automati...
DSNZPARM to disable MODIFY option DELETEDS - compliance issue
It should be possible to disable the option for deleting physical datasets along with modifying recovery information for a tablespace, as in MODIFY RECOVERY TABLESPACE XXXXXX.XXXXXXXX

Record Conditional Image Copies That Are Bypassed In SYSIBM.SYSCOPY
We have a requirement to take daily image copies and to prove the copies were taken. When Db2 bypasses conditional copies from CHANGELIMIT (because NO CHANGE LIMIT MET) or from FULL NO (because TS CONTAINED NO CHANGED PAGES), Db2 does not record i...
Record A Shrlevel Change Image Copy As Shrlevel Reference When Possible
Shrlevel change image copies that are older than the available Db2 logs can not reliable be used for recovery because there may have been inflight URs at the time of the copy that got backed out after the copy finished. To recover to current, Db2 ...
When I run a PART LEVEL REORG (PART 1 in this case) of a PBG tablespace and the current data doesn't fit into its original partition DB2 adds a new partition at the end and uses it for the "overflow" data, although all the already existing partiti...

In a 24 hour online Db2 environment it can be difficult to complete an online REORG because the VSAM switch phase may fail, due to the activity on the tablespace being too high. The idea is to use the system monitors or a log analyzer tool to look...
Implement Inline Image Copies for COPY YES Indexes during Reorg utility operations
There appears to be expected functionality missing within DB2 Reorg Index (and Tablespace) utility operations to allow "normal" Image Copies to be taken inline for Indexes that have been defined as COPY YES similar to the inline Image Copies that ...
