Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All DB2 10 for z/OS, and DB2 11 for z/OS     *
    *                 REORG SHRLEVEL CHANGE utility users          *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: DB2 Sort for z/OS not used when running *
    *                      REORG TABLESPACE SHRLEVEL CHANGE on a   *
    *                      table space with no index defined even  *
    *                      though DB2SORT system parameter is set  *
    *                      to ENABLE.                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply corrective PTF when available          *
    ****************************************************************
    When processing the mapping table index during a REORG SHRLEVEL
    CHANGE execution DFSORT will be used instead of DB2 Sort for
    z/OS when the table space does not have any index defined. The
    utility will continue to run but will not benefit from DB2 Sort
    advantages.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code has been changed to correctly pick DB2 Sort for z/OS in the
    specified situation when it is enabled and available.
