APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Downlevel clients will make a call to sqlf_fix_dbm_cfg since the
    client level and database server level are not the same.  This
    increases the probability of an EACCESS error caused by the user
    not having write access to db2systm.
    

Local fix

  • Open up the permissions on the db2systm file
