    Dear Members

    I am a developer cum DBA working for a services company.

    Analysing a requirement to move data from IMS to DB2 ( within Z/OS)

    Understand that DPROP could be a just enough tool to use.

    Havent checked with IBM yet officially, but I understand support for DPROP was closed in 2017.

    Is anyone here still using it in Z/OS ?  Would you know if it is still available to buy ?

    Tried to post a question in IBM site, but it asks for a more official form of the IBM id.  I have an IBM id but it is a personal IBM id and not a corporate id.

    Hi, we have current (in support) technologies and offerings that provide the capability to replication from IMS to Db2 z/OS. Here is a link to a relevant section of the documentation:

    Hi Devendra

    Thank you much

    so this is CDC about which i also read the link below

    I see that the destination can be AS400 Db2 also ( DB2/400 )

    So I should be able to setup relocation between IMS on Z/OS and   Db2 on  AS400  ? 

    If so, the initial table definitions, data mapping etc.. is it also covered in this product ?

    Thanks for your reply

    The documentation includes all the steps to configure replication
    You will need to install the following components to replication from IMS to DB2 on z or i (DB2/400)
    1) IMS Classic CDC Agent
    2) Classic Data Architect - GUI to provide a relational view to CDC of the hierarchical data
    3) Management Console - GUI to manage monitor and configure replication
    4) Access Server - Service to facilitate and manage connections from the Management Console to the source and target replication agents
    5) CDC Target agent(s) for DB2z and DB2i etc
