APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • "thinsetup" does register the ODBC driver without the
    CLIENT_COPY_NAME
     as
        "IBM DB2 ODBC DRIVER"
     instead of
        "IBM DB2 ODBC DRIVER - <CLIENT_COPY_NAME>"
    
    This leads to following error at catalog of a data source:
    
    DB21036E  The command CATALOG SYSTEM ODBC DATA SOURCE failed.
    

Local fix

  • On Thin Client workstation, after DB2 Thin Client is setup via
    thnsetup.exe:
    
    1). Create a NEW registry entry on thin client as below:
       HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\IBM DB2 ODBC
    Driver - DB2_ThinClient
    
    2). Copy all values for this new entry from:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\IBM DB2 ODBC
    DRIVER.
