Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
    IIS 801FP1, All platforms
    
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    Parallel jobs containing netezza stages fail intermittently
    with the error message Parallel job reports failure (code 139)
    and produce core dumps after installing a Netezza patch. This is
    because the provided Netezza patch is not in sync with the
    Parallel Framework (PX) patches at the customer site.
    
    RECOMMENDATION:
    Install the latest patches provided for PX and Netezza
    

Problem conclusion

  • The earlier JR34513 Netezza operator patch provided was not in
    sync with the Parallel Framework (PX) patches.
     To sync PX and Netezza patches, the Netezza operator patch
    should be built based on the latest PX patch available. Both the
    latest PX patch and Netezza patch should be sent to the
    customer.
