Add the "Share Open Data Path" attribute to the QDBRTVFD API
The SHARE ODP attribute is missing from the QDBRTVFD API. While SHARE is technically a file's MEMBER attribute, it is an attribute that is pervasively associated with a file object. Currently there is no user-accessible way of retrieving that attr...
IBM introduced SQL function QSYS2.CHANGE_IOP to reset ISCSI IOPs only. We would like to have support to use QSYS2.CHANGE_IOP function to IPL other IOPs (like virtual fibre channel IOPs - CMBxx) as well.

Enhance the QLIRNMO API so it updates SQL Catalogs the same as the RNMOBJ CL command
Today, the QLIRNMO API only updates the SQL Catalogs for SQL TABLE, VIEW, and INDEX objects. But for SEQUENCES, TRIGGERS, VARIABLES, etc. it does not and the association between the SQL Object long name, and the shorter System Object Name is lost,...
