usually run in sequence in the same change window.
Most people like to run the conversion jobs in ACCESS(MAINT). So
Db2 gets cycled after
CM and NFM, but not after ENFM (because NFM is coming up).
2) It is usually convenient to run the catalog extended LRSN format
So a recycle afterwards is necessary.
Of course you can try to run these jobs in normal mode. I don't -

consequences. I suppose it depends on what locks application
programs put on the catalog
During a V8 to V10 migration one Db2 subsystem was brought up in
normal mode - Db2
objected and switched itself into MAINT mode for the running of
DSNTIJTC. I don't know if
V11 would do the same.
