Db2 12 function level support

When you activate new Db2 12 function levels in a Db2 subsystem or data sharing group, enhancements might become available that impact Db2 Recovery Expert.

The levels of function level support are defined as follows:
The product works as it did on a previous release or function level of Db2 for z/OS, but it does not support the new features of this function level.
The product supports most, but not necessarily all, of the new function-level features that IBM deems the most significant for this product.

The following function levels are tolerated or supported by Db2 Recovery Expert and are provided with the corresponding PTF, if any. For more information on Db2 features at each function level, select the link in the Db2 12 function level column.
