I’m not sure where to begin as I’m not that familiar with the DB2 Data Studio (very familiar with MS SQL Server 2008 Management Studio) but I’ll describe the simple task I’m trying to execute.

What I’m trying to do is change columns in a table through IBM Data Studio 3.1. I can successfully add a column, but I can’t change a column name or delete a column.  When I execute the change plan I get the following error:


No authorized routine named "SYSPROC.ADMIN_CMD" of type "PROCEDURE" having compatible arguments was found.. SQLCODE=-440, SQLSTATE=42884, DRIVER=4.12.79

Interestingly enough, I can successfully execute these same changes from the client machine through the IBM Control Center application without any error.

Client OS: Windows 7 64-bit
Client Application: IBM Data Studio 3.1 Administration client
Server OS: Linux Red Hat
Server DB: DB2 Express C V8.2
