If RCM cannot determine the DB2 version it will default to DB2 v8.
It is the presence of DDL from an index with e.g. BUFFERPOOL BP8K0 that triggers the DDL00281 error, since BP8K0 was not valid in DB2 v8.
When creating the strategy online you must enter a target SSID. If it does not exist in the SETUPxx parmlib member you will be prompted for the target DB2 version. If omitted, RCM will use V10R1M0.
However, in batch JCL it is possible to edit or omit PARMFILE option TRGSSID and TRGVERS. The problem can happen if:
- No target TRGSSID specified (only possible in Quick Migration)
- Target SSID does not exist in SETUPxx and no TRGVERS is specified in JCL PARMFILE
