APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • On big-endian platforms, the default value for the AUTO_REVAL
    database configuration parameter retrieved via the db2GetCfg API
    is incorrect.  Precisely, you only get the invalid value when
    calling the db2GetCfg API for the AUTO_REVAL parameter,
    specifying the db2CfgGetDefaults flag.
    

Local fix

  • There is no workaround when using the API, however, the default
    value is SQLF_AUTO_REVAL_DEFERRED defined in sqlutil.h.  Hence,
    use the constant itself for referencing the default value.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * DB2 Version 9.7 GA through to Fix Pack 2 servers, on         *
    * big-endian platforms using the db2GetCfg API with the        *
    * db2CfgGetDefaults flag set.                                  *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * Incorrect assignment of the default value for the AUTO_REVAL *
    * database configuration parameter leads to the API returning  *
    * the incorrect value for big-endian platforms.                *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * Apply DB2 Version 9.7 Fix Pack 3 or refer to the constant    *
    * defined for the default value directly.  Namely, refer to    *
    * SQLF_AUTO_REVAL_DEFERRED as defined in sqlutil.h             *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • Problem first fixed in DB2 Version 9.7 Fix Pack 3 and all
    subsequent Fix Packs.
