Error description

  • When SSL connections are being made from a Db2 client, the
    connection may intermittently fail with a "GSKit Error: 17" or a
    "GSKit Error: 106".
    
    The error message returned to the command line will look similar
    to the following:

    17" could not be loaded.  SQLSTATE=42724
    
    
    The db2diag.log may also contain messages similar to the
    following:
