Sybase replication server for SAP business suite on DB2/zOS

If the Sybase replication server is supported for SAP Business Suite on DB2/zOS? I checked the guides in help.sap.com and as of 15.7.1 SP200, it supports the replication from SAP Business Suite on the following databases

Oracle

IBM DB2 UDB

Microsoft SQL Server

Does this mean it supports DB2 on LUW as well as zOS? Where can i find this information?

replied

SAP Replication Server and Replication Agents do not support replication from SAP Business Suite on DB2 z/OS.  You did find the correct information, although the latest can be found in the SAP Replication Server 15.7.1 SP303 documentation.

Supported primary databases:

Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE)

Oracle

MSSQL

DB2 UDB

Terminology:

Replication Agent is a generic term used to describe the Replication Agents for SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise (SAP ASE), Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, and IBM DB2 for Linux, Unix, and Windows.

The specific names are:

RepAgent - Replication Agent thread for Adaptive Server Enterprise

Replication Agent for Oracle

Replication Agent for Microsoft SQL Server

Replication Agent for IBM DB2 UDB

* note that the term DB2 UDB is short for "IBM DB2 for Linux, Unix, and Windows" - this does not include DB2 z/OS
