  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Using the -ASYS command option with the msdexport/msdimport
    command may result in systems being lost from the Integration
    Flow Designer documents.
    
    For example, using the following commands on any .MSD document
    with systems defined will result in a new.msd file with no
    systems defined.
    
    msdexport old.msd -o export.xml -asys -log
    msdimport export.xml -o new.msd -asys -log
    

Local fix

  • WTXCQ - WTX00041463
    PB / PB
    Circumvention: Do not use the -ASYS command flag.  If required,
    remove Servers imported into the document manually.
    

Problem summary

  • Users Affected:
    WebSphere Transformation Extender customers using MSDIMPORT and
    MSDEXPORT utilities
    
    Problem Description:
    MSDIMPORT command line utility does not generate the system
    definition file (.msd) from the exported system definition file
    (.xml) when the command line uses -ASYS command option with out
    any systems included in the command value (to include all
    systems).
    
    Platforms Affected:
    Win32
    

Problem conclusion

  • Fixed a problem with MSDIMPORT and MSDEXPORT command line
    utilities where they now work as expected with -ASYS and -ASVR
    command options in the command line by generating the XML and
    MSD files correctly.
    
    Delivered in:
