DB2 Admin Server on z/OS
Hi all,

I've been playing with the DB2 admin server on z/OS, and it works quite

The only problem is when I try and start it from outside of USS as a
started task using BPXBATCH as documented in the FAQ on the DB2 admin
server, I get the following error in the db2dasdiag.log, and the admin
server fails to start:

2006-11-30- I1C699 LEVEL: Error (OS)

Has anyone seen anything similar or have any tips on how to get round
this? It works fine if I log in and start as the DASUSER id under USS.

DB2 V8
z/OS 1.6 (or 1.7 depending on the day, this is our sandpit system)
