    The following errors occur:
    (1) Db2 12 only:
    (a) The following Db2 subsystem parameters were removed
    from Db2 12:
    o DSN6ARVP.ALCUNIT
    o DSN6SPRM.CACHE_DEP_TRACK_STOR_LIM
    o DSN6SPRM.CACHEDYN_FREELOCAL
    o DSN6ARVP.CATALOG
    o DSN6SPRM.CHECK_SETCHKP
    o DSN6SPRM.CONTSTOR
    o DSN6SPRM.DB2SORT
    o DSN6SPRM.EDMPOOL

    o DSN6SPRM.LEMAX

    o DSN6SPRM.SQWIDSC
    o DSN6SPRM.UTSORTAL
    o DSN6SYSP.XMLVALA
    o DSN6SYSP.XMLVALS
    
    However, the z/OSMF variables associated with these
    obsolete Db2 subsystem parameters are still found
    in the Db2-supplied DSNTIV* sample z/OSMF variable
    input files and in the Db2-supplied DSNTIW* sample
    z/OSMF workflow definition files. Although these
    extraneous entries do not affect installation or
    migration of Db2, they are potentially misleading and
    need to be cleaned up.
    
    Table 1 below lists the z/OSMF variables associated
    with the obsolete subsystem parameters.

    (b) The following problems are found in the panel title
    of these Db2 install CLIST panels:
    o Title overlaid by panel ID:
    - DSNTIPMA, DSNTIPMD, DSNTIPME, DSNTIPMF, DSNTIPMI
    DSNTIPMJ, DSNTIPMN, DSNTIPMS, DSNTIPMT, DSNTIPM4
    o Truncated title prefix (ACTIVATE mode):
    - DSNTIPC, DSNTIPM1, DSNTIPT
    o Missing title prefix:
    - DSNTIPM3, DSNTIPM4, DSNTIPM5, DSNTIP00
    o Extra hyphen between title prefix and title:
    - DSNTIPO4, DSNTIP7, DSNTIP71, DSNTIP72
    o Code cleanup:
    - DSNTIPA2, DSNTIPR1
    (c) Panel DSNTIPU: Install CLIST ignores the library
    name specified in HIGH LEVEL ASSEMBLER LIB because
    the ZVAR for this field is IASMLIB instead of ASMLIB.
    (2) Db2 11 only:
    The following problems are found in the panel header of
    these Db2 install CLIST panels:
    o Title overlaid by panel ID:
    - DSNTILMA, DSNTILMD, DSNTILME, DSNTILMI, DSNTILMN
    DSNTILMS, DSNTILM4
    o Missing title prefix:
    - DSNTILM3, DSNTILM4, DSNTILM5
    o Extra hyphen between title prefix and title:
    - DSNTIL7, DSNTIL71, DSNTIP7, DSNTIP71
    o Duplicate title:
    - DSNTIL41, DSNTIP41
    o Code cleanup:
    - DSNTILA2, DSNTILR1, DSNTIPA2, DSNTIPR1
