APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • ABEND04E RC00C90218 DSNISGSC ERQUAL5001 after an online REORG
    with inline COPY.  The error occurs when a mix of
    partitions with basic and extended page formats
    are being reorganized.

Local fix

  • Until a fix is available, the following guidance is recommended:
    Do not convert any partitions to extended page format unless
    you can convert all partitions at the same time and can
    guarantee that any new partitions will be created with extended
    page format.
    Table spaces with a mixture of partitions in basic page format
    and extended page format should be converted to make all
    partitions of the table space have the same page format.
    If that is not practical, do not run online REORG with inline
    copy (REORG ... SHRLEVEL CHANGE ... COPYDDN ...) on a list
    of some or all partitions unless you are certain that all
    partitions in your list share the same page format.
    Catalog field RBA_FORMAT - Basic or Extended
    in SYSIBM.SYSTABLEPART can be useful in making
    determinations about your current page format.

      User ran an online REORG TABLESPACE utility with inline copy
    (SHRLEVEL CHANGE...COPYDDN) on a list of partitions of a
    partitioned table space concurrently with insert/update
    activity.  The list included a mix of parts which had, and had
    not, been converted to extended page format.
      The REORG completed normally, but later attempts to access
    the data failed with ABEND04E RC00C90218 DSNISGSC ERQUAL5001.
      This happened because REORG did not correctly calculate
    the offset to the page modified bits for all space map pages
    in all partitions.  Since some of the partitions had been
    converted to extended RBA/LRSN page format, this offset was not
    the same in all partitions.  In particular this led to missing
    data for universal table spaces (UTS) because when REORG
    logapply processing reset page modified bits at the incorrect
    offset in some of the partitions, some segment data information
    residing on those space map pages was inadvertently cleared.
      Whether REORG properly recalculated the offset when the offset
    was different was dependent on the contents of residual storage.
    Therefore, this problem is intermittent.
      In addition to the reported abend, symptoms could include
    various abends from queries, vendor products, or other
      Note that this problem can only occur for REORGs which do not
    convert the page format of the partitions they are run on, and,
    for users with hash-organized table spaces, the same exposure
    exists when:
    - LOAD REPLACE of a hash tablespace with a mix of extended- and
    basic-format partitions when a sequential inline image copy is
    - REORG TABLESPACE (any SHRLEVEL) of a hash tablespace with
    a mix of extended- and basic-format partitions when a sequential
    inline image copy is requested or required.

Problem conclusion

  • DB2 utility code was changed to ensure that REORG and LOAD
    utilities will recalculate the offset to the page modified bits
    in the space map pages for each partition as needed.
