Error description

  • Due to the way we build IIB we can only supply one db2swit file
    per release. This file will only be compatible with one version
    of Db2 for the entire product lifecycle. The customer will need
    to build their own version of the db2swit file for Db2 v11 as
    described on the IBM MQ Knowledge Center article 'Creating
    switch load files'
    https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SSFKSJ_9.1.0/com.
    ibm.mq.sce.doc/q023390_.htm
    
    
    
    The customer should only need to build this file once per
    platform and use it as a drop in replacement for the one that
    ships with IIB.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users of IBM Integration Bus V10 and IBM App Connect
    Enterprise V11 using DB2 for globally coordinated transactions.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    AIX, HP-UX Itanium platform, Linux on Power platform, Linux on
    x86-64 platform, Linux on zSeries platform, Solaris x86-64
    platform, Solaris SPARC platform, Windows on x86-64 platform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    The product supplies a pre-built switch load file to allow
    globally coordinated database transactions with DB2 using IBM MQ
    as the transaction coordinator. If this switch load file is not
    compatible with the version of DB2 being used by the customer
    then they will need to build their own version of the file. The
    documentation for IBM Integration Bus and IBM App Connect
    Enterprise is missing the instructions for building this library
    file.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The documentation for IBM Integration Bus and IBM App Connect
    Enterprise has been enhanced to include troubleshooting advice
    and instructions on building a switch load file for DB2.
    The readme.db2 file that is shipped as part of IBM Integration
    Bus and IBM App Connect Enterprise has also been enhanced with
    instructions on how to build a switch load file for DB2 and
    where to find further information.
