  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • While preparing a response to message 1019 from the Management
    Console, the Agent incorrectly calculates the number of tables
    named in the message if there are temporal tables in the list.
    This causes the Management Console to detect a malformed
    message response and generate the error message.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: Users of IIDR CDC for z/OS who define        *
    *                 temporal tables.                             *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: When mapping tables under a             *
    *                      subscription, and navigating to the     *
    *                      tables to be chosen, the Management     *
    *                      Console presents a list of the          *
    *                      available schema names to the user.     *
    *                      The user clicks on one to expand the    *
    *                      list of tables under the schema, and    *
    *                      the Management Console requests that    *
    *                      list from the Agent using message 1019. *
    *                      When the Agent is assembling the list,  *
    *                      it discounts the temporal tables from   *
    *                      the list because they are not capable   *
    *                      of being replicated.  When it sends the *
    *                      list of remaining tables, the count of  *
    *                      names still includes the discounted     *
    *                      temporal tables.  The Management        *
    *                      Console detects this discrepancy and    *
    *                      raises the "malformed message" error.   *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    
    The existence of temporal tables under a schema will cause a
    "malformed message" error when that schema is expanded by the
    Management Console.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The table name count in the message 1019 reply will be adjusted
    for any table names that have been discarded from the name list.
