I'm getting following error when using Hibernate in a Java application over my DB2 database. This error occurs with one DB2 database and not with another (I'm almost sure the problem is in DB2 server side configuration), and I didn't found the difference between the two databases.

The SQL error -443 is missing from the documentation I found: http:// (one link maximum per question due to reputation)

According to following link, the 111 part of the sql state 38111 would indicate the reason of the failure.

Any idea ?

INFO [SchemaValidator] fetching database metadata WARN [JDBCExceptionReporter] SQL Error: -443, SQLState: 38111 ERROR [JDBCExceptionReporter] DB2 SQL error: SQLCODE: -443, SQLSTATE: 38111, SQLERRMC: SQLTABLES;SQLTABLES;-204 MYDB.SYSTABLES

A SQLCODE of 38xxx means there was a problem with a user-defined function, stored procedure, trigger, or other external function. You won't figure this out by checking the error code.

Your best bet is to reproduce the error on a specific DB2 subsystem, assuming your company has more than one, and record the exact timestamp. Then have someone with DB2 experience examine DB2 logs to find more information.
