The r18.0 CONVERT CATALOG utility will update the definition of the SYSTEM.TABLE table. This table can be displayed in OCF or IDMSBCF and compared against the release 18.0 table definition found in the 18.0 SQL Reference Guide.

In r18.0, the column immediately following PROCDBNAME is DEFAULTINDEX. In prior releases, it is a FILLER. If your SYSTEM.TABLE has the DEFAULTINDEX column then that catalog has had the r18.0 CONVERT CATALOG utility run against it.
