Can you connect to the DB2 instance using other DB2 utilities?  Is the
DB2 .NET provider 100% managed core [or is it like the @&%^&@ Informix
".NET provider" just a wrapper around Win32 DLLs].

Makes me wonder if you are missing an environment variable that allows
the driver to find its error messages glossary.
