If you are migrating from DB2 Version 9 or DB2 Version 8 to DB2 10, then you need to check out Info APAR II14702. This APAR provides guidance on avoiding know issues both when moving to Conversion Mode(CM), and when entering Enabling New Function Mode (ENFM).
You can read this APAR here: II14702: AVOIDING MIGRATION ISSUES FOR FASTER MIGRATION HINTS & TIPS TO V10
Note that this APAR is in INTRAN status and such is likely to be updated as new information becomes available and as new issues are encountered. For that reason, this blog entry does not contain the APAR text. Instead, we strongly recommend that you read the APAR on a regular basis to ensure that you don't miss any important updates.
We further recommend that you track and remain alert on any HIPER maintenance relating to migration and to the ENFM process.The use of extended HOLD DATA is advisable.
In particular we'd like to draw your attention to the advice to perform ENFM in maintenance mode if at all possible, and if you are data sharing to shut down all members apart from the one in maintenance mode where you plan to run ENFM. If this is not possible, then we recommend that you run ENFM at as quiet a time as possible.
