Issue:

We have a 3-way sysplex with data sharing.  I can get into SYSVDB2 locally on two systems, but attempting to communicate to a remote DC via RAF I receive the error: "DBG550I9I DB2 location not known to CA SYSVIEW for DB2". All three systems are running off of the same libraries due to shared dasd. 

Cause:

The cause of the problem was that there lacked valid hardware paths between the LPARs.

Resolution:

The SYSVWDB2 (IDB2) DC Applid's need to be defined correctly (as illustrated in the RAFDCAPP .Source member).  Also, a correct setup for the LOGMODE along with valid hardware paths between the machines (LPARS) need to be in place to allow for RAF to function properly.
