Error description

  • When redistributing using a target map the redistribute command
    can incorrectly update the SYSCAT.DBPARTITIONGROUPDEF view.
    
    This problem only affects redistribute with a target partition
    map. Redistribute marks any database partitions which are added
    but not in use and not in the target partition map as in use
    after the redistribute command finishes, even though no data is
    moved to these database partitions.
    
    The IN_USE field of SYSCAT.DBPARTITIONGROUPDEF will be changed
    from 'A' to 'Y'.
