However, "RC=106 and "RCODE=0085" information can not be identified in the DB2 Message and Code. Where can the "RC=106" and "RCODE=0085" information be acquired?


Release : 20.0

Component : RC/Update for DB2 for z/OS


The return code 106 and reason code x'85' are actually internal codes. The RG008 error message can return a variety of codes, however in this particular case these are internal. ERR106 is issued by our Call Attach facility when it is unable to find the specified SSID or if it is left blank. The text that is included with the message specifically explains the problem, so in this case, there is no need to check the IBM documentation.
