Error description

  • Product : InformationServer(DataStage)
    Version : 8.1
    Platform : AIX
    Client : XP
    
    
    There are two jobs. One is an original job and customer copied
    it with another name.
    
    Customer tried to compare 2 jobs using "job compare" function in
    Designer.
    But this function indicates that there was a monification on one
    annotation even though the customer has not changed the
    annotation.
    
    This function seems to compare different annotations.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Job comparisons with Annotation stages
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    Comparisons of jobs with Annotation stages that had been
    manipulated by Cut/Copy/Paste operations caused Diff to compare
    the wrong objects - this typically showed differences when no
    differences were expected.
    ****************************************************************
    RECOMMENDATION:
    Install patch JR36614
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • The internal stage name of the annotation objects required
    normalization ensuring comparison picks up the correct object
    being compared.
