I'm trying to set up an environment where I can use "LOAD from cursor" to move data from one remote database to another database.

INSDB is the target and MRIINS is the source.

I have the remote source databases cataloged as such and can connect to them.

 Database alias                       = MRIIN
 Database name                        = MRIIN
 Node name                            = MRDBA01
 Database release level               = d.00
 Comment                              = MRIIN on dbs01
 Directory entry type                 = Remote
 Catalog database partition number    = -1
 Alternate server hostname            =
 Alternate server port number         =

 Database alias                       = INSB
 Database name                        = INSB
 Node name                            = QADBS01
 Database release level               = d.00
 Comment                              = INSDB on qadbs01
 Directory entry type                 = Remote
 Catalog database partition number    = -1
 Alternate server hostname            =

However, when I run my sql script to load the data, I get the SQL1013N error.
---
connect to insdb user batchusr using

   Database Connection Information

 Database server        = DB2/LINUXX8664 9.7.6
 SQL authorization ID   = BATCHUSR
 Local database alias   = INSDB


DECLARE IIS_ACCAOR_CURSOR cursor DATABASE MRIIN user BATCHUSR USING          for select * from IIS.ACCAOR with ur
DB20000I  The SQL command completed successfully.

LOAD FROM IIS_ACCAOR_CURSOR of cursor REPLACE into IIS.ACCAOR nonrecoverable
SQL1013N  The database alias name or database name "MRIIN" could not be found.  SQLSTATE=42705

Why is the script now giving me this error?  What piece of the puzzle am I missing?

Thanks!

Hi databits,

The LOAD statement has the same authentication requirements as other SQL statements.

  DECLARE IIS_ACCAOR_CURSOR cursor DATABASE MRIIN user BATCHUSR USING          for select * from IIS.ACCAOR with ur

Test that BATCHUSR is authorized to get to MRIIN

  CONNECT TO MRIIN user BATCHUSR using ******

I am able to connect to MRIIN as batchusr outside of the script. And the batchusr id has connect and select privs on the table in  the MRIIN database. But I still get the SQL1031N.

Are they both DB2 instances?

Yes, both databases are in DB2 instances. But they are on separate servers.
Do in need to catalog the MRIIN database to the instance where INSDB database resides?

To "catalog the MRIIN database to the instance where INSDB database resides" you would essentially be setting up the Federated Environment.  If you're using DB2 Express-C, you won't be able to do that.

It looks like both databases are defined to your local client with CATALOG DATABASE or CATALOG TCPIP NODE.  But I believe that what you're trying to do requires that the databases be federated.

If you're not in a federated environment, just EXPORT the data from the source and IMPORT it into the target.
