Error description

  • After implementation of IZ04276 the DB2 client application reads
    some environment variables(DB2NODES, DB2PATH, DB2INSTRPOF on
    unix and DB2NODES, DB2INSTDEF, DB2INSTANCE on windows) when
    loading the client library.   As a result , every change to the
    environment variables that are made by the application will be
    ignored.  This can affect some applications  (ie datastage).
