Consider the following scenario:
You try to use a query to read data by using the Microsoft ADO.NET Provider for DB2.
The data is stored in DB2 for z/OS V11 as TIMESTAMP(6) WITH TIME ZONE.
When you run the query in this scenario, you experience the following exception:
Type not supported. SQLSTATE HY000 with SQLCODE -343.
After this update is installed, the Microsoft DRDA Application Requester Client for DB2 data conversion functionality is updated to correctly process DB2 for z/OS V11 TIMESTAMP(6) WITH TIME ZONE columns.
This issue is fixed in Cumulative Update 2 for Host Integration Server 2016.
