APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When the ISD DS Handler reads a row from the shared pipe, status
    is returned.  In the case where the expected number of columns
    does not match the actual number of columns for the row, a
    status of -99 is returned.  The handler does not recognize this
    status and continues attempting to read from the pipe.  However,
    the same -99 status is returned and the handler loops until the
    job is manually stopped.
    

Local fix

  • This symptom is indicative of a job design that includes a
    shared container that has a subset of its columns mapped
    directly to an ISD Output stage.  To correct the issue the job
    must be changed, either removing the unmapped columns from the
    shared container or insert a copy stage between the shared
    container and the ISD Output stage.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users that create an ISD service using a job with a shared
    container mapped directly to an ISD output stage but with only a
    subset of the columns contained in the mapping.
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    This creates a mismatch in expected columns versus actual
    columns when a row of data is read from the ISD output stage
    generating status -99.  Status -99 is not handled by the code
    and it continues to attempt to read a row of data and loops
    until the job is manually stopped.
    ****************************************************************
    RECOMMENDATION:
    The code change in patch_JR44216_ISD_all_8700 detects the -99
    status and aborts the job.  To correct the issue, the job must
    be changed, either by removing the unmapped columns from the
    shared container or by inserting a copy stage between the shared
    container and the ISD Output stage.
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • The job must be changed, either by removing the unmapped columns
    from the shared container or by inserting a copy stage between
    the shared container and the ISD Output stage.
