    Unhappy Unanswered: Drop index implicity

    Hi guys!,

    I have a problem with db2, i need drop index implicity because the manager database created an index and i cannot drop explicity (DROP INDEX name-index).

    I read this article: IBM DB2 9.5 Information Center for Linux, UNIX, and Windows but not working for me.

    The index call SQL140110084234790 (generated by system).

    I try:

    error message: SQL0204N "SQL140110084234790" is an undefined name. SQLSTATE=42704

    - DROP INDEX SYSIBM.SQL140110084234790;
    SQL0669N A system required index can not be ruled out explicitly. SQLSTATE = 42917

    and similar statements but it did not work.

    Any idea?.

    Thank you very much!

    it seems you either defined a unique key or a primary key on the table, prior to creating an index? If you want to drop this, then you need to remove the defined constraint, create a new index to support the constraint, then define the constraint.
