Problem conclusion

  • Customer should upgrade to v9.7 FP4 or later FP which contains
    the fix for the above mentioned problem.
    
    The following is applicable only for SJIS database and for the
    searches that are used on double byte special characters.
    
    An environment variable is introduced which needs to be manually
    set/unset depending on the conversion table in use.
    If default conversion table is used , set the following
    environment variable before creating the index .
    
    export NSE_SJIS_USE_IBM_UCODE= TRUE
    db2set DB2ENVLIST=NSE_SJIS_USE_IBM_UCODE
    Restart DB2/NSE
    
    This helps in converting the characters in SJIS format to
    UNICODE according to IBM conversion table during update index
    process.
    The variable should be unset while Microsoft conversion table is
    in use.
