Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. 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.

Workspace Db2 for z/OS

Enhance the message "table XXXX not found" during running load Utility.

We actually want DB2 load utilities to display consistent error messages that are easy to find. It should definitely be an ‘E’rror, not a ‘W’arning or ‘I’nformational message’, but it should also contains something like ‘UNSCCESSFUL’, or ‘ERROR’,

something that is easy to search for.

It should also be displayed at the end of the output. Right now, they display ‘DSNU012I 170


if they also display actual errors.

By now, when we encounter the "UTILITY EXECUTION TERMINATED, HIGHEST RETURN CODE=8", we need find "E " / "W "/"ERROR"/ try locate the actual error. Before we know the message "DSNU056I", we look the output line by line in thousands rows with eye. So it is a big pain for our DBA team.

We load many tables in one segment tablespace.... Output is over 1.1 MILLION lines...... 90% is DSNU650I messages but they get a RC8 and are trying to search the entire output as to where the problem is.
