Error description

  • If a special build was applied to the system and the special
    build contains special versions of .bnd or .lst files under
    under the SQLLIB/BND folder, they may not get upgraded by the
    Fixpack install.
    
    This happens because the files under SQLLIB/BND are not
    versioned.  The Windows Installer architecture will only
    replace unversioned files if they have not been modified since
    the last install.  Since a special build may contain fixes in
    files
    under SQLLIB/BND, Windows Installer will not upgrade them.
    
    To avoid this issue, this APAR will introduce file versioning to
    the files under the SQLLIB/BND directory.  This way it will
    enforce Windows Installer to upgrade the files regardless if
    they were modified or not.
    

Local fix

  • The files that were not upgraded can be manually updated by
    copying them from an existing install at the same Fixpack level
    and replacing the old files that were not upgraded properly
