Error description

  • Connection to a remote dsrpc daemon through dsjob fails with
    error messages like:
    
    ERROR:  Failed to open project
    Status code = 81016
    
    This occurs with dsrpcd running and no firewall between the two
    server systems that would prevent a socket connection to the
    port used by dsrpcd (typcially 31538); connection to the server
    via DataStage clients, for example, works fine.
    
    The problem is caused by connect() with an incorrect socket.
    
    To test this issue, add an IPv6 address and alias to
    /etc/hosts and then try:
    
    dsjob -domain NONE -user xx -password xx -server alias
    -lprojects
    
    This should fail with either 81011 or 81016.
    

Local fix

  • This fix is included in 8.0.1 fixpack 3
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    On AIX with Information Server 8.1, dsjob commands can fail.
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    dsjob commands to remote servers can either (1) fail with error
    81016 (connection refused) or (2) incorrectly connect to the
    local server.
    ****************************************************************
    RECOMMENDATION:
    Patch exists for both 8.1.0.0 and 8.1.0.1.
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • Added code to initialize the sockaddr_in structure prior to
    making assignments to specific fields and passing it to the
    connect() call.
