  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • There is a potential inconsistency in the catalog tables which
    can cause database migration to DB2 v10.1 to fail.
    This inconsistency is a mismatch in SYSIBM.SYSTABLES between the
    STATS_PROFILE column and the information stored in the Packed
    Descriptor, if a table has  a runstats statistic profiles
    stored.
    
    So far this has only been reported for statistal views (a.k.a
    STATVIEWs). We need to provide a check utility (like db2cat -v)
    for this inconsistency that can be done pre-migration to avoid
    migration to a later DB2 version to fail.
