Requirements and authorizations
This version of the LOADPLUS product has the following system, software, and authorization requirements.
System and software requirements
This version of the LOADPLUS product supports IBM DB2 Versions 10 (new-function mode only) and 11 subsystems. In addition, LOADPLUS has the following requirements:
System requirements are as follows:
IBM System z10 processor or a later 64-bit z/Architecture processor
z/OS Version 1.10 or later
For all types of load jobs, you must have a minimum of the following versions of BMC common components:
Version 2.4.01 of BMCSORT
Version 11.2.00 of the DB2 Utilities Common Code (D2U)
Version 11.1.00 with PTF BPJ0944 of the DB2 Solution Common Code (SCC)
To update DB2 catalog statistics or the DASD MANAGER PLUS database statistics tables, you must have installed a minimum of version 11.2.00 of the BMC Common Statistics component.
To perform a LOAD RESUME YES SHRLEVEL CHANGE SQLAPPLY load, you must have installed a minimum of version 11.1.00 of the BMC High-speed Apply Engine product.
For the following features, LOADPLUS requires version 6.1.00 or later of either the BMC EXTENDED BUFFER MANAGER (XBM) product or its SNAPSHOT UPGRADE FEATURE (SUF) technology.
When checking referential constraints during your load job
When you specify LOAD RESUME YES SHRLEVEL REFERENCE
If you use the XBMID option to specify a particular XBM subsystem, that subsystem must be at this maintenance level. If you do not specify a particular XBM subsystem and snapshot processing is required, LOADPLUS searches for an XBM subsystem at this level.
To offload eligible processing to a zIIP, LOADPLUS requires version 6.1.00 or later of either XBM or SUF.
If you use the XBMID option to specify a particular XBM subsystem, that subsystem must be at this maintenance level. If you do not specify a particular XBM subsystem and ZIIP ENABLED is in effect, LOADPLUS searches for an XBM subsystem at this level.
To use any features that invoke DSNUTILB, you must be licensed to use the IBM DB2 LOAD utility.
NoteFor information about the features that invoke DSNUTILB, see DSNUTILB.
Using the LOADPLUS product requires that you have the appropriate authorization within DB2 and through your system security package, such as the Resource Access Control Facility (RACF).
You need sufficient authorization to access resources and perform the tasks that are accomplished during LOADPLUS processing.
Authorization verification mechanisms for the Utility products
The products use one of the following mechanisms to verify authorization:
If the DB2 DSNX@XAC authorization exit is available for your system, the product uses this exit to verify authorization for external access. The exit is available from the following sources:
IBM provides a sample exit with DB2 for the IBM Resource Access Control Facility (RACF) component.
CA Technologies provides the DSNX@XAC exit with the CA-ACF2 and CA-Top Secret products.
BMC recommends this mechanism for implementing external security. The access control authorization exit must be available in the STEPLIB, JOBLIB, linklist, or in the SYS3.DSN exit.
If the DSNX@XAC exit is not available, the product uses the standard DB2 method to check security.
