During an RC/Migrator for Db2 for z/OS (RCM) alteration strategy messages RMA172W and RMA180E display.
RMA180E: YOU HAVE SELECTED TO USE PDS ANALYSIS, BUT THERE IS NO PDS FOR MIGRATOR ANALYSIS COMPLETED
The job stops with a RC=16.
These warning and error messages can be eliminated by checking the following parameter on the ALTERATION STRATEGY ANALYSIS screen:
ACCESS SPECIFICATIONS: ACM ANALYSIS ===> N PDS ANALYSIS ===> N <==== should be set to N
The PDS ANALYSIS option indicates whether to use a PDS to access the product internal structure of the DB2 subsystem.
Valid values are:
Y - Use a partitioned data set (PDS) to access the internal structure of the DB2 subsystem.
Read access must be held for the partitioned data set.
N - Do not use PDS access. N is the default.
