Error description

  • The Snapshot Cleanup feature in IBM Process Center can cause
    some DB rows to incor-rectly be removed for named snapshots that
      were initially created in the timeframe of the cleaned up
    snapshots. This is specific to the cleanup of snapshots with the
     scheduled cleanup task and not the WSADMIN command.
    
    
    This can lead to errors similar to this one:

    It can  also cause other errors that may occur due to missing
    records in database tables.
    
    The snapshots affected by this  issue will have  sequence
    numbers that fall in the range of one of the cleanup actions.

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Scheduled snapshot cleanup task removes named snapshots
    incorrectly from database.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.0.1 that ensures that
    sequence numbers are calcu-lated correctly. No named snapshots
    will be incorrectly removed by running the sched-uled snapshot
    cleanup task.
