Hi Tom,

Yes, you are correct. We have the remote DB entry, along with ADDSVRAUTE (Add Server Authentication Entry). For RPG programs, the CRTDDMF works great; we have a small application in production that is using that, along with remote data areas.

However, SQL does not like files created with CRTDDMF.  SQL *does* like files created with CREATE ALIAS which point to a remote table, which are actually DDM files; but RPG doesn't like those.

Kind of like the IBM development teams (SQL and RPG) didn't agree on something.

I seem to recall there was change in how DDM authenticates, now you must add a remote DB entry
On source system add an RDB entry to point to the target systemADDRDBDIRE RDB(rdb_name) RMTLOCNAME('x.x.x.x' *IP)
Then run your SQL on LOCLIB/LOCNAME
