  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The name of the .zip file created by db2support has a maximum
    size of 32 bytes, which is not big enough for all cases.
    
    E.g.
    When db2support is run with '-global' option the name of the
    .zip file is db2support_<hostname>_full.zip. When the host name
    is big enough for the name of the .zip file to exceed 32 bytes
    the output file could be something like this:
    "db2support_<hostname>_full."
