Pinned topic VS2010 Entity Framework "generate from database" produces empty model.

‏2012-12-07T16:19:20Z |
Hello all,

I've run into a problem when attempting to create my entity model from a db2 database. I am using Visual Studio 2010, and pasted below is the output of db2level:
DB21085I Instance "DB2" uses "32" bits and DB2 code release "SQL09074" with
level identifier "08050107".
Informational tokens are "DB2 v9.7.400.501", "s110330", "IP23237", and Fix Pack

Product is installed at "C:\PROGRA~1\IBM\SQLLIB" with DB2 Copy Name "DB2COPY1".

Whenever I attempt to generate my entity data model from a database, the model always ends up being empty. I can browse the tables based on my filter criteria and select the tables I would like to include in the model, but everytime I confirm my selections, the IDE freezes for a solid 10 minutes, and then I am presented with an empty model and no errors. Please let me know if there's any additional information anyone may require for further debugging.
