Troubleshooting SQL2219N and reason code 9

23 March,2012 by Tom Collins

This DB2 error message SQL2219N  reason code 9 appeared in the db2 db2diag file. 

The DB2 documentation details for reason code 9 are “START is not allowed as a prior paused table reorganization has not been stopped”.

I discovered there was a scheduled maintenance of the databases – 1) REORG - managing reorg of tables  (and indexes).  2) RUNSTATS

It conflicted with the AUTO_REORG  on the databases. Turning off AUTO_REORG stopped the error occurring.
