Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All DB2 9 and DB2 10 for z/OS users who use  *
    *                 the GETHINT built-in function to retrieve    *
    *                 the hint for the password with which the     *
    *                 data were encrypted.                         *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: ABEND04E RC00E70005 in DSNXRSBC P016    *
    *                      may occur when the GETHINT built-in     *
    *                      function is used to retrieve the hint   *
    *                      for the password with which the data    *
    *                      of a NOT NULL column were encrypted     *
    *                      but there was no hint specified during  *
    *                      data encryption.                        *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    ABEND04E RC00E70005 in DSNXRSBC P016 may occur when the GETHINT
    built-in function is used to retrieve the hint for the password
    with which the data of a NOT NULL column were encrypted but
    there was no hint specified during data encryption.
    
     =========
      EXAMPLE
     =========
    
     CREATE TABLE PM83404 (C1 CHAR(250) NOT NULL);
    
     -- set encryption password without hint
     SET ENCRYPTION PASSWORD ='Ben123';
    
     INSERT INTO PM83404 VALUES('ABCDEFGH') ;
    
     -- abend occurs
     SELECT GETHINT(ENCRYPT_TDES(C1)) FROM PM83404;
    
    DB2 has incorrectly set the result nullability of GETHINT to
    NOT NULL when the argument is NOT NULL, which causes the abend
    and incorrect nullability information in DESCRIBE, DSNTIAUL
    sample program, and dynamic SQL processing programs such as
    SPUFI, DSNTEP2, and DSNTEP4. The result nullability of GETHINT
    should be 'nullable'.
    

Problem conclusion

  • DB2 code has been modified to handle the GETHINT built-in
    function correctly.
