When attempting to execute a 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.
