An XMLInput comes back with error message ds_intput() - row too big for inter stage rowbuffer

Technote (troubleshooting)


After migrating a DataStage that uses the XMLInput stage from a Non-NLS server to NLS server
the job aborted with the following error message:

Job_name..XML_Parser.link_name: ds_intput() - row too big for inter stage.


DataStage job fails after migrating from a Non-NLS server to a NLS server.


Using a UTF-8 NLS map caused the input data to be larger than expected, which caused the error. There can be other reasons that the data is larger than expected.

Resolving the problem

Changed the NLS map from UTF-8 to ISO-8859.
