Issue/Introduction

On a DB2 v11 subsystem, an RC/Migrator Analysis is generating an IBM Reorg Utility followed by a standalone Image Copy. When the Reorg utility is executed it fails with the following error:

DSNU047I +DB2D 059 14:26:47.03 DSNURFIT - A REQUIRED DD CARD OR TEMPLATE IS 
MISSING. NAME=SYSCOPY 

The following Analysis Utility options have been specified:

IMAGE COPY (Y,P,N) ==> Y

REORG TS,IX,B,N    ==> B

Cause

An inline image copy is required rather than a standalone image copy.

Environment

DB2 V11 and above.

Resolution

As this is a partitioned tablespace, you should set the Image Copy analysis option to 'P': 

Image Copy ===> P 

In batch, this can also be achieved by changing the PARMFILE control cards in the Analysis JCL as follow:

Add the PARTITION parameter to the IMAGCOPY card

IMAGCOPY PARTITION

This will provide partition independence and will generate an inline image copy in the Reorg utility.

 

 

 

 

Additional Information

You can find further details on the Image Copy analysis option in the online help by hitting PF1 on the Analysis Options panel, 'RC/M ICL/Alter/Compare Strategy Analysis Options'.
