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.

We faced situations in which LOAD SHRLEVEL NONE jobs abends with S04E and Reason Code 00C200EC during UTILINIT phase.

When this abends occurs, LOAD was unable to DRAIN all the claimers, once it is SHRLEVEL NONE, before beggining LOAD data into table.

In these cases no command -DIS DB CLAIMERS is automatically issued in order to show what are the claimers that are blocking the LOAD drain. In these cases we depend on a operator issue this command, but sometimes when command is issued claimers are not in place anymore and we don't know what was blocking LOAD DRAIN. No DB2 message is issued to MSTR or SYSLOG either.

So we think it would be very useful if this -DIS DB CLAIMERS command was automatically issued in this scenario with LOAD SHRLEVEL NONE as it already happens for LOAD SHRLEVEL REFERENVE and REORG SHRLEVEL CHANGE/REFERENCE in SWITCH phase whem DRAIN fails.
