When attempting to execute a RC/Migrator for Db2 for z/OS (RCM) migration, it resulted in the following error message:
BPA0159E: UNABLE TO DETERMINE DB2 VERSION: PROCESSING TERMINATED RETCODE = 16
This means that the job has not established a connection with the target SSID for some reason.
This error message can occur as a result of several different actions:
1) The .CONTROL statement in the input to the BPIOPT DD is missing the + continuation character at the end of the statement.
2) When a Restart request was executed. Check that the .RESTART statement is coded and that the .CONNECT statement follows the .RESTART statement.
3) If a Restart syncpoint is requested. Check that the .CONNECT SSID statement is after the syncpoint.
