We have an application that interfaces to SAS8.2. Although SAS8.2 is no longer supported by SAS, we need to support it until the application is replaced. The UNIX sas program retrieves data from DB2 successfully, but when we do a disconnect from db2; we receive a CLI error (DB2) that the disconnect was unsuccessful, and, of course everything is broken from that point on. Everything works fine if I run with SAS9.3/SAS9.4 but there are issues, that prevent us from moving to either of those environments.
This program worked fine until this week. The only change in the SAS environment was the installation of HADOOP connectivity for SAS9.4. It should have had no impact on SAS8.2.
Adding OPTION SASTRACE gives me:
3 options sastrace=',,t,d' sastraceloc=saslog;
4 proc sql;
5 /* CONNECT TO DB2(DB=EDW5P1 USER=&RACF PASSWORD=&PASSW READBUFF=200 ); */
6 /* EXECUTE (SET CURRENT QUERY OPTIMIZATION =2) by db2; */
7 CONNECT TO DB2 (DB=EDW5P1 USER=&RACF PASSWORD=&PASSW);

Thank you for your assistance.
