When I use XCV2ODBC or migrate history records, I receive a connection error:  

SQLAllocHandle(DBC) rc = -1 
SQLAllocHandle failed, 0, {DB2 FOR OS/390}{ODBC DRIVER} SQLSTATE=58004 ERRLOC=2:165:9 
CAF "CONNECT" failed using DB2 system:DSN 
RC=0c and REASON=00f30006 


This is the explanation from the IBM DB2 doc for reason code x'00F30006' from the IBM Knowledge Center: 

A failure occurred while processing the 'Subsystem Name' during connection processing. In the abend case, connection processing failed when accessing the 'Subsystem Name' in the caller's PSW key. In the nonabend case, MVS™ was unable to locate a DB2® subsystem with the specified name. 

In other words - the DB2 subsystem you are trying to connect to cannot be found in your z/OS system.  This is a database configuration problem
