APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • This problem occurred when a customer enclosed all the
    parameters of the db2se spatial CLP in double-quotes, passing
    them all as argv[1] to the application.  This exceeded the space
    of the work area they were copied into and resulted in a core
    dump on AIX.
    

Local fix

  • Don't enclose all the parameters in double-quotes.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * Enclosing all of the parameters to the spatial 'db2se'       *
    * command may result in a core dump or other operating system  *
    * detection of memory corruption.                              *
    * For example:                                                 *
    *                                                              *
    * db2se "import_shape mydb <lots of parameters>"               *
    *                                                              *
    * where the string between the double-quotes is more than 200  *
    * bytes long.                                                  *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * Don't enclose all the parameters in double-quote characters. *
