RMA887E in snapshot analysis using RC/Migrator

RC/Migrator for DB2 for z/OS Database Management for DB2 for z/OS - Administration Suite


Error RMA887E occurs in RC/Migrator for Db2 for z/OS (RCM) snapshot analysis (recovery):

RMA887E The DB2 version ( V12R1M0 ), was found while attempting to retrieve the RI objects.


The RMA887E error is a result of RC/Migrator failing to identify the correct Db2 version.
This may occur when there is a module mismatch between the Xmanager runtime load library and the Product runtime load library.


Check that Xmanager is using the same hlq.CDBALOAD as RC/Migrator.

If not then you will need to recycle Xmanager pointing it to the correct runtime load library.

When there is any maintenance to the Xmanager authorized services, then there will be holddata to follow to run the Xmanager started task with
latest runtime libraries to avoid the module mismatch errors.

For example for PTF LU01362:

                      * STEPS    TO    PERFORM *                        
To implement the PTF:                                                   
1. Stop product collections.                                            
2. Stop the Xmanager task.                                              
3. Update the runtime library.                                          
4. Restart the Xmanager task.                                           
Please do not apply maintenance to the Xmanager runtime libraries with  
Xmanager active as it may result in a discrepancy between               
dynamically loaded components and statically loaded components.         
This may result in unpredictable behavior with CA-DB2 tools and/or may  
compromise the operating system/DB2 including possible failures.
