RC/Query: RC=088, RCODE=0156 OFS Internal error

RC Compare for DB2 for z/OS



After issuing the DDL line command in RC/Query (RCQ), the following error occurs:  RC=088, RCODE=0156 OFS Internal error  

Object Framework Services (OFS) is a services layer that is used to perform DB2 system catalog access and generate DDL.


How can this be resolved?




Component: RCQ



The error "RC=088, RCODE=0156 OFS Internal error" in RC/Q is a result of this user not having an OMVS segment defined. This is a requirement for our Object Framework Services which is the CA RC/Query DDL generator. The error is occurring because an OMVS segment is needed for the user.


Additional Information:

This requirement is documented under Object Framework Services in the CA Database Management for DB2 for z/OS documentation.  



OFS uses UNIX System Services (USS) provided POSIX services. Access to OMVS is required. If the NO-OMVS setting in CA ACF2 or NOUID setting in RACF is specified, contact an administrator to remove this setting to enable user access to OMVS.
