InfoSphere QualityStage Multi National Standardization (MNS) Stage migration issue: by default not all countries selected

Technote (troubleshooting)


InfoSphere QualityStage MNS Stage job exported from Information Server 8.1 that are imported into Information Server 8.5 or later do not have all countries selected by default as was previously defined in Information Server 8.1 release.


When an Information Server 8.1 job containing an MNS Stage gets exported it has within the DSX all the previous selections saved as all uppercase. When that DSX is imported into a release after Information Server 8.1 and the MNS Stage is opened, the MNS Stage uses the prior saved values by comparing each against the current list of countries (now mixed case in Information Server 8.5 and later). The results are that only LUXOMBOURG is displayed because it alone matches as it was the same case between 8.1 and 8.5.

This issue only occurs when importing an MNS Stage from Information Server 8.1 into an Information Server 8.5 or later release. This only causes issues with what values are displayed in the Designer Client for the MNS Stage and does not affect the running of the job.

Resolving the problem

To resolve this issue, manually select the correct countries in the MNS Stage after the job is imported into Information Server 8.5 or later.
