  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • You might encounter situations where the IBM Data Server Driver
    for ODBC and CLI is using extended security feature although it
    should not. This might result in unpredictable application
    behaviour.
    
    This issue happens if the following conditions are meet:
    - the IBM Data Server Driver for ODBC and CLI package is being
      used
    - there is no other DB2 product installed or no installed DB2
      product is using the extended security feature. (no DB2USERS
      and DB2ADMNS Windows user groups have been created on the
      system)
    - DB2 Connect Server license files are used to enable direct
      host connectivity for the IBM Data Server Driver
    
    This APAR enhances the code to distinguish between the client,
    that is coming with a full installation, and the client
    that was just unzipped and run.
    

Local fix

  • There a three possible workarounds:
    - use DB2 Connect Personal Edition License file instead of
      DB2 Conect Server License files
    - set DB2_EXTSECURITY=NO in Windows environment
    - create the Windows User groups 'DB2USERS' and 'DB2ADMNS'
