Supporting Oracle compatibility mode in DB2 Enterprise Edition and DB2 Connector stage.

Technote (troubleshooting)


Support for DB2_COMPATIBILITY_VECTOR=ORA in DB2 Enterprise Edition and DB2 Connector stage in IBM InfoSphere Information Server.


As we do not support DB2_COMPATIBILITY_VECTOR registry variable, setting it at the database end using 'db2set' could cause the DB2EE or DB2Connector jobs to fail with incompatible datatypes or incompatible functions.

Resolving the problem

As of now, DB2_COMPATIBILITY_VECTOR=ORA registry variable is not supported by DB2 Enterprise Edition or DB2 Connector stages.
