MORE INFORMATION

After you apply this hotfix, you can specify the Database Name property when you use OLE DB Provider for DB2 to connect to a DB2 z/OS system. This property only applies to connections to DB2 z/OS systems.

You can specify the Database Name property in the All tab of the Data Link Properties dialog box, and also in the DB2 Database page of the Data Source Wizard in the Data Access Tool.

When the Database Name property is set, this property informs OLE DB Provider for DB2 to append the IN DATABASE clause to CREATE TABLE statements.

When the Database Name property is used in the context of a Microsoft SQL Server replication, this property enables you to specify which DB2 z/OS tables will be created during the replication process.
