APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The Component Installer needs to be fixed to set SupportsRef =
    'Y' for DB2 API plugin and other plugins.   This will enable
    reference links for DB2 API plugin and other plugins.
    

Local fix

  • There is something that can be done immediately to fix the
    problem:-
    
    1) Export the stage type to a .dsx file in DS Designer
    2) Close DS Designer
    3) Edit the .dsx file and change:   SupportsRef "N"     to
    SupportsRef "Y"
    4) Issue this command to update the stage type:
    
    C:\IBM\InformationServer\ASBNode\bin>dsximportservice -ISHost
    host:port -ISUser dsadmin -ISPassword **** -DSProject ProjName
    -DSXFile exported.dsx -OverwriteReadOnly
    
    This command needs to be executed for each project separately.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users of IBM Information Server 8.1 Fix Pack 1 attempting to
    create Reference Links in new parallel jobs.
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    After applying Fix Pack 1 to an IBM Information Server 8.1
    installation, creating Reference Links in a new parallel job
    reports "The source stage does not support reference links" or
    similar error, even if the stage involved should support
    Reference Links.
    ****************************************************************
    RECOMMENDATION:
    - Apply the patch for JR37731
    - Manually redeploy the component jars for any Stage Types you
    wish to use Reference Links with. The manual redeploy
    instructions are contained in the patch's README.txt.
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • The resolution was to revert the "SupportsRef" property
    handling to the pre-FP1 behavior via the patch for JR37731.
    
    After patch application, the customer will need to manually
    redeploy the component jar(s) of any effected Stage Type they
    want to use Reference Links with. Manual redeployment
    instructions are included in the patch README.txt.
    
    The potentially effected components are:
    
      Name   StageTypeID   Component jar
      ===================================================
      DB2 UDB API  DSDB2PX       dsdb2.jar
      Dynamic RDBMS  DRSPX       drs.jar
      Informix CLI  InfmxCLIPX    infmxcli.jar
      Java Client  JClientPX     javaclient.jar
      Sybase OC  SYBASEOCPX    sybaseoc.jar
      Teradata API  TeradataPX    teradata.jar
      Web Services Client WSClientPX    wsclient.jar
