APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Having more then 20 Z/OS data sources cataloged on a client may
    cause connection to fail with error DB21018E due to a license
    verification issue.
    

Local fix

  • 1) Catalog less then 20 Z/OS data sources on the client.
    
    2) If there are more than 20 catalog entries, but cached value
    is less then 20 you will not see DB21018E error.
    
    In order to clear the entries in cache so that there are only 20
    connections, you can remove conlic.bin file from
    ~/sqllib/cfgcache to clean the connect license cache.
