    ANSWER:

    The MVDB2/DC Admin/Archive hyperlink is enabled when the context is set to a DB2 monitored by the Data Collector.

       
    1. The DBC started task should be active and the Data Collector (DOM agent) initialized in the DBC. Issue console command /dcssid STATUS command to check the status of the Data Collector.
    2.  
    3. Set MVDB2 CONTEXT to a local target DB2 subsystem. Issue CON db2target. CONTEXT ALL includes all the DB2 targets.     
           
      1. The DB2 should be monitored by the Data Collector. Issue console command /dcssid STATUS command. BMC24951 is issued for each DB2 defined in the DOMPLEX optionset.
      2.    
      3. The ENABLE WITH MVDB2/DC should be set to Y in the DOMPLEX optionset. Issue console command /dcssid IFCIDS db2ssid to display the IFCIDS collected for the DB2.
      4.

    1. ENVRN view (page down to 2nd page) shows the CDC name for the DB2 context. The CDC= parameter in the BBPARM DMRBEX00 member specifies the DBC ssid that this PAS connects to. You can access this member by using the PASPARM view.
    2.  
    3. If the Data collector is not active, use clist DOMCLIST or LGC$ISPF to access the MVDB2/DC administrations panels.
