Error description

  • Customers migrating version 8 database (which was originally
    created in version 7) to Version 9, will experience internal
    corruption in the methods associated with the spatial column.
    Spatial column is a special structured type column. The methods
    associated with this type are executed when an operation is
    performed on this column.  It is this column
    .
    The main issue here is that these methods created in v7.2 or
    earlier, which are then migrated to version 8.* will suffer an
    internal corruption when migrating to v9.1, v9.5, or v9.7.
    This corruption in turn affects the spatial extenders because of
    their use of structured types (spacial columns).
    .
    This will cause different issues in different release of version
    9.  Here are the outcome of select query performed on such
    column on version 9.5
    .
    1.Version 9.5 will return incorrect results
    .
    This APAR will address and fix the corruption caused during
    migration from version 8 (for database created in version 7) to
    version 9 releases described above. This APAR does not fix
    corruption if you have already migrated to version 9 without
    this fix.
