DB2 Transaction operation fails on large changes

dapcom asked
Last Modified: 2012-08-14

I have a VisualStudio 2005 Web Application (VB) that works with a DB2 Database.
I have a problems when using transactions, but only when the number of changes increase inside the transaction.
The error I get is this one:
[DB2] SQL0805N Package "DBName.NULLID.SYSLH20A.535..." was not found. SQLSTATE 51002

The same code works perfectly with smaller updates. Its only when more updates are made in the transaction that I get the error. An bigger is not that big: I'm talking about maybe 2000 records.

The first time I got this message the name was DBName.NULLID,SYS203. Our DBA 'created' the missing package (I don't know what he did precisely; the term created might be totaly out of place here).
This allowed our application update further, but then we got the same error with another package: DbName.NULLID.204..., then 205 and so on.
Now it's 20A.
We could go on and add them as they come, but I guess it's not the thing to do.
Is there something in DB2 configuration that should be changed? Is a special grant needed to use Transactions? How can I know how many packages will be needed?
I have no knowledge of DB2 Admin.

Thanks for any help.

Thank you momi_sabag for your quick answer,

I guess I'll need DBA grant to do that, I'll ask them to do it..

 I thought I already accepted your answer long ago.
