Error description

  • When a view is created on a base object, such as a table or
    another view, there is a set of privileges granted by the
    database manager to the definer of the dependent view.  If the
    AUTO_REVAL database configuration parameter is set to IMMEDIATE,
    then system privileges are supposed to be re-granted for the
    owner of the view when the base object is recreated, however,
    they are not.
    

Local fix

  • Set AUTO_REVAL database configuration parameter to DEFERRED
    while performing maintenance on objects.  Otherwise, recreate
    the dependent view to pick up the correct system granted
    privileges.

    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * System privileges on views dependent on base objects do not  *
    * have privileges re-granted when the base objects are         *
    * redefined.                                                   *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * Set AUTO_REVAL database configuration parameter to DEFERRED  *
    * while performing maintenance on objects.  Otherwise, ensure  *
    * to always drop and recreate dependent views when base        *
    * objects are redefined, or apply DB2 Version 9.7 Fix Pack 2   *
    * to obtain the fix.                                           *
