Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea
Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests
The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.
Receive notification on the decision
Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.
It should be possible to restart redirected recover in the same manner as you can restart the standard recover utility. When running redirected recover of a large group of tables, it is a waste of time to have to restart if an error is encountered...
We would like to add feature to the CHECK UTILITY to support list of tabelspaces that are in CHECK-PENDING status to be checked. In a case we have some tables in CHECK-PENDING status and the tables have RI we need to know the connection between th...
Allow Template to populate output datasets such as PUNCHDDN to utilize PDSE's
If I use a listdef for an unload utility, I am forced to create a separate dataset for each tablespace in the listdef for PUNCHDDN's Template. I am requesting the ability to specify a PDSE in the PUNCHDDN and each tablespace would create a like na...
Hello! We have to LOAD a very large delimited file into a DB2 for zOS Table! The file comes from another organization and is deliverd to many companies! It uses ';' X'5E' as column delimiter and it is not possible to edit the file, because it is &...

Parameter on RECOVER utility to override UTILS_BLOCK_FOR_CDC
We want to be able to use the new DSNZPARM UTILS_BLOCK_FOR_CDC but are not comfortable doing it as it prevents us from performing recover of a table. We don't understand why UTILS_BLOCK_FOR_CDC applies to recover as there is no choice whether we w...
LOAD utility support for removable media / TAPE for WORKDDN, SYSUT1 and SORTOUT
"... The LOAD utility WORKDDN data sets, SYSUT1 and SORTOUT, are multi-use datasets. When a very large table is loaded, it is sometimes necessary to use a tape device for these datasets. The problem is if error or discard processing is invoked, th...
Allow COPY with Templates to pick TAPE or DASD based on RTS
We are creating intraday Image Copy jobs that may contain a mix of small and large tables. We use Templates and Include/Exclude to determine which objects should go to TAPE and which should go to DASD. The threshold for what determines large or sm...
