This is the APAR to upgrade IS 8.5 and later to MKS toolkit 9.4fp1 + hotfix CFS31959. This upgrade replaces the one in APAR JR39847 . PROBLEMS fixed with this patch: - On Windows Server 2008 it has been reported that the remote tools rhs.exe, rcp.exe, rexec.exe, and rlogin.exe are missing from the MKS Toolkit directory after a successful installation of InfoSphere Information Server 8.5 which includes the Engines tier. This leads to problems when trying to configure the DataStage Parallel Engine for use in a MPP clustered configuration. - Some users reported installation problems of the MKS 9.4 software bundled with Information Server 8.5. Sometimes the MKS portion of the install reported licensing errors. This patch fixes those problems. - Permission problems with the MKS 9.4 sometimes prevented DataStage parallel jobs from running in an MPP configuration - Under high CPU loads, parallel jobs would sometimes hang completely because of locking issue inside the MKS Nutcracker layer. - Usually under high CPU loads, jobs would fail with the message: " Global critical section Nut4MsqIdClassGlobalCriticalSection was abandoned by process xxx" (Hotfix CFS31959)
