APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The following error may be displayed when running an OLE DB
    application with the IBM Data Server Driver package
    
    'IBMDADB2' provider is not registered
    or
    'IBMDADB2.1' provider is not registered
    
    This occurs because only the provider qualified by the copy name
    is registered (IBMDADB2.IBMDBCL1)
    

Local fix

  • As a workaround, the connection string can be updated to use the
    provider qualified with the copy name such as:
    Provider=IBMDADB2.IBMDBCL1;etc....
    
    If it is necessary to use the default provider name, it can also
    be created manually in the registry:
    Use the following location as a template:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\IBMDADB2.IBMDBCL1
    
    Create a new section called:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\IBMDADB2
    
    Then create all the associated values within this location so it
    matches exactly as what is located within
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\IBMDADB2.IBMDBCL1
