9.1 db2look against 8.2 database


On one machine I have DB2 8.2.4 and on one I have DB2 9.1.
If I run db2look from the DB2 9.1 machine against a database that is on the
DB2 8.2.4 I get:
SQL5060N The configuration parameter token specified is invalid.

Any ideas how to resolve this ?

Best regards,

I don't see a way around it. Obviously db2look internally is looking for
something DB2 V8 doesn't have. Unless you find documentation that states
that db2look supports back level releases (which I doubt) this wouls be
considered to work as designed.

One of the databases has 50 views and when I do a db2look I only get schema for 40 of them. If I select from the sysviews, I can see all 50 (the text column contains schema for all 10 (missing) views). What's going on here? Why can't or how can I get the schema for these 10 views. Aix 5.1 V7.2 EE FP9 Thanks.

about db2look, if i want to extract the ddl from one schema then reproduce the database objects on different server with different schema, is it a way to do it? e.g. we provide the same ddl structure for different clients, but must be under different schema names for different customers.

When running db2look from ESE/xp/8.2.7 against a xp/8.1.6, it runs fine except (at least) when the -l switch is set, to get tablespaces and the like. With that switch, the 1427N is thrown. The ESE/8.2.7 does have federated databases, but not the one being looked. A scan of the APARS and this list reveal nothing. More oddly, running the...
