How I became a Db2 for z/OS DBA... OVERNIGHT!

I imagine my story is not entirely uncommon, but it is certainly unique to me. I was a SQL Server DBA for 7 years at Southern Farm Bureau Life Insurance, when a sudden personnel change led me to becoming our company’s new Db2 for z/OS DBA, (in addition to my role as the SQL Server DBA) literally overnight.   Because I had database experience, management thought this made sense and would not be out of my realm of knowledge or comfort.  Anyone working with Db2, z/OS, knows there is so much…

Support for the extended LRSN and RBA format in IBM Db2 for z/OS

Some time ago, John Campbell, Michael Dewert and I published a Db2 white paper on the support for the extended LRSN and RBA format introduced in Db2 11. This paper is no longer available on the internet, so we have decided to reproduce it here as it contains valuable information for safely implementing the extended format in both data sharing and non-data sharing environments, and in particular for avoiding pitfalls which can lead to unplanned outages. …
