IBM DB2 and .NET

It looks like IBM has been improving their support for DB2 in .NET.  They also have a plugin for Visual Studio. They have released an Express version of their database (wonder where the name for that came from).

I am wondering if I can use TransactionScope in Business Layer for ASP.NET, c#, DB2 combo.

In Theory, this should work  since I am using DB2 v9.5. But after applying code in BL, it is throwing an error as,

" SQL0998N  Error occurred during transaction or heuristic processing.  Reason Code = \"16\". Subcode = \"2-8004D026\".  SQLSTATE=58005\r\n"

Any Idea?
