Error description

  • When importing dsx project into Information Server 8.1, the DS
    Stagetypes records for the project are imported into XMeta. But
    these stagetypes records are not copied to the UV repository.
    So, if customer imports the compiled job and tries to run the
    job, they get a "pin initialization error". Customer has to
    recompile their job or open the stagetype in DS Designer for
    that record to be copied over.
    

Local fix

  • 1/ Recompile the job
    2/ Open the stagetypes in DS Designer.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    DataStage Job runs are experiencing "Pin not initialized"
     errors.
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    Stage Types installed as part of a PACK are only created in the
    design-time repository, and are not automatically provisioned
    into the run-time project directories. If a job executable that
    uses one of these Stage Types is imported into a project,  and
    run immediately, it can generate run-time warnings logs such as
    "Pin N not initialized",  and the job run will fail.
    ****************************************************************
    RECOMMENDATION:
    patch_JR33952_client_windows introduces a new client program
    (DSStageTypeUpdater.exe) that can be used to ensure that all
    Stage Types   which are installed for a project are provisioned
    to the server in one command.
    This fix is included in 8.1 FP1
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • If the job design is compiled, or the missing stage is opened
    in the Designer, the equired Stage Type record will be
    automatically provisioned onto the server.  This will remove
    the"Pin not initialized" messages.  However, that workaround
    may   not be possible if the job in question is being deployed o
    some production systems.
    

Temporary fix
