Problem summary

  • 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)
    

Problem conclusion

  • Install the patch associated with this APAR.
    Note that this patch does not use the usual patch installer.
