Abstract

RDARS-ONDCSRV-INCORROUT Single quotes in description fields not
handled

Error Description

When creating or changing an output queue or directory monitor  
definition, single quotes in the description result in an error
stating that the add, change, or delete of the monitor failed.  
This problem also exists for disk pools, NFS disk pools, optical
storage groups, TSM storage nodes, and tape devices.            

Problem Summary

When creating or changing a migration policy, accented          
characters in the description field may expand to multiple      
incorrect characters.  This problem also applies to the        
description field for levels within the migration policy.      
                                                               
When creating or changing a directory monitor, single quotes in
the description result in an error stating Add, change, or      
delete directory monitor failed.  This problem als applies to  
outq monitors.                                                  

Problem Conclusion

A request to create or change a migration policy using the      
Navigator for i interface is handled internally by running the  
ARSXML command.  The XML file that is passed to ARSXML contains
the description for the policy and its levels.  The code that  
builds the XML file is performing incorrect CCSID translation  
for the description text.  This has been corrected.            
                                                               
A request to create or change a monitor using the Navigator for
i interface is handled internally by issuing an SQL INSERT or  
UPDATE statement to add or change a row in the QARLCMON table in
the instance library.  The code that builds the description    
field does not handle single quotes correctly.  This has been  
corrected.
