    ****************************************************************
    An IBM Informix Product was purchased by HCL and
    rebranded to "OneDB Server". Because of the changed product
    name, the database type is not assigned correctly in WebSphere
    Application Server. The result is many messages similar to the
    following appear in the SystemOut.log file:
    [9/4/20 18:20:45:959 EDT] 00000129
    ConnectionWra E Could not determine database type: Not a
    recognized database type => OneDB Server
    The database type assignment defaults to DB2, and though this
    appears to work properly, it depends entirely on how closely
    OneDB Server matches with DB2.  Possible problems might occur
    in cases where OneDB Server does not align with DB2.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The application server code has been updated to include OneDB
    Server as a valid database type.
    
    The fix for this APAR is targeted for inclusion in fix packs
    8.5.5.20 and 9.0.5.8. For more information, see 'Recommended
