Error description

  • When using 'OPTION FILSZ integer' in utility a syntax error is
    received:
    DSNU005I    DSNUGPRS -  OPTIONS FILSZ=10
    DSNU049I    DSNUGPRS - INVALID OPERAND 'FILSZ' FOR KEYWORD
                           'OPTIONS'
    in spite of the fact that the option is documented as working in
    the "Utilities Guide and Reference" manual.
    To override the file size value passed to dfsort the following
    statement is accepted by DB2:
    OPTIONS FILESZ=10
    .
    There is a mismatch between the doc and the DB2 behavior.
    DB2 needs to be changed to work accordingly to the syntax
    documented in the manual.
    

Local fix

  • Use FILESZ in place of FILSZ

      FILSZ is documented as a keyword of OPTIONS utility and
    is meant to be used only as directed by IBM Support.
      If it is used, DSNU049I (INVALID OPERAND) is issued
    by the DB2 utilities parser, and the job fails rc8.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Utility parser support was added for the FILSZ keyword
    of OPTIONS utility.
