Description:

We have installed a new release of DB2 and have applied all the maintenance. When we start the region, it fails with two error messages:

ACFD2404 - Unable to create ACF2 record directory
ACF0A202 INVALID REQUEST - UNDEFINED STORAGE TYPE

Solution:

The latest version of the APPLDEF record is not in place for this release. You need to update the GSO APPLDEF by running the job in member CP13ADF8 from the CACPJCL0 library. This adds multiple APPLDEF records for all of the DB2 functions. Here is a sample of a few of them:

SET CONTROL(GSO)
INSERT APPLDEF.DB2BPL TYPE(BPL/BPL) APPLDIV(-) APPLDLEN(4) COMPILE -
CLASS(D/DB2) EXTCOMP RECID(ACFD2CDI/-) -
RECIDLEN(6) SYSID(****)
INSERT APPLDEF.DB2COL TYPE(COL/COL) APPLDIV(-) APPLDLEN(4) COMPILE -
CLASS(D/DB2) EXTCOMP RECID(ACFD2CDI/-) -
RECIDLEN(128) SYSID(****)
INSERT APPLDEF.DB2CON TYPE(CON/CON) APPLDIV(-) APPLDLEN(4) COMPILE -
CLASS(D/DB2) EXTCOMP RECID(ACFD2CDI/-) -
RECIDLEN(128) SYSID(****)
