An application owner reported an error


DB2 SQL error SQLCODE -30082, SQLSTATE 08001, SQLERRMC 42;ROOT CAPABILITY REQUIRED;DSRA0010E SQL State = 08001, Error Code = -30,082.


I checked in the  db2diag.log


Password validation for user xxxxx failed with rc = -2146499506

The main reason this sequence of errors appear is due to the DB2 password daemon not started. Therefore the db2sysc process attempts the password check. If the db2sysc process doesn’t have root authority the error code . SQL30082N 42 appears.

How to fix the ROOT CAPABILITY REQUIRED error SQL30082N


1)    Check to see  db2ckpwd  is running as Root

2)    If not , start up and restart the db2 instance
