  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When you run INSPECT utility to check MDC (Multi Dimensional
    Clustering) tables in your database you might get false error
    reports.
    
    The error in the INSPECT report will look like following for
    example:
    
    ---
    Error: Found error type  (scan relative page 8148 EMP 258995
    with entries 12
       after 1st non-full EMP at scan relative page 150)
       drtbps.C dartScanExtentMapObject 1063
    ---
    
    This error says that INSPECT found multiple EMPs (Extent Map
    Pages) that do not contain the maximum number of entries.
    These holes are expected for MDC tables and therefore no error.
    
    This APAR will ensure INSPECT utility with DB2 v9.7 does not
    report this as an error.
    INSPECT utility with DB2 v10.1 and newer does not hit this
    issue.
