APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The file sent from iSeries platform in EBCDIC format is not
    translated to ASCII after the file is received in IBM
    Sterling File Gateway, if the datatype and xlate parameters are
    not specified in C:D (PNODE) script.
    

Local fix

  • The work around is to mention Datatype=Text and xlate=yes in
    the C:D script on iseries.
    

Problem summary

  • Users Afected:
    All
    
    Problem Description:
    Files are not translated from EBCDIC to ASCII by default
    from CD iSeries to SI/CDSA after upgrading from V5.2.4 to
    V5.2.6.3_3.
    
    Platforms Affected:
    All
    

Problem conclusion

  • Resolution Summary:
    
    A code fix is provided.
    
    The Connect Direct protocol defines (2) values describing AS400
    and iSeries platforms.  The CDSA only recognized one these.  The
    CDSA now recognizes both platforms during default copy
    parameter value processing restoring copy behavior when the COPY
    statement from the remote iSeries PNODE's process does not
    specify any destination SYSOPTS.
