APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The current limit for the maximum db2inspf input and output
    filename is 100. If you use one with value greater than 100 then
    db2inspf will trap with signal 11.
    
    This APAR will address the signal 11 issue as follows:
    
    1) Increase the limit to 256, which is current container name
    size, to allow user use a longer input/output filename.
    
    2) Add filename length checking before using it, and return an
    error when filename is over limit.
    

Local fix

  • Do not use filenames that are longer than 100 characters.
