I don’t think that’s going to work for you. The .savf is an iSeries “Save File” and is only restoreable on another iSeries. I suggest you ask the DBA to export the files to another format for you, maybe he can FTP them to a PC in ASCII format. Make sure you let him know you’re not working with an iSeries. Most people will assume DB2 is either iSeries or Mainframe.
