APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When DB2_ALTERNATE_GROUP_LOOKUP is set to GETUSERATTR, and a
    user is not an explicit member of their primary group, the
    primary group is not reported by Db2 and Db2 will not consider
    the user to be a member of the primary group.
    
    This may result in privilege or authority errors such as
    SQL1060N, SQL1092N, SQL0552N or SQL0551N.
    

Local fix

  • Explicitly add the affected user as a member of their primary
    group.

    reported by Db2.
