Abstract

ISV FIX ON IBM I DOES NOT DEPLOY THE CORRECT COMPONENTS

Error Description

When installing a fix on IBM i, if you modify the command that a
custom component is suppose to run, the command in the base    
component is actually run. If you add components in a fix and  
install on IBM i that component is not installed and you may    
experience an install hang, although it will eventually timeout.
This is because files on IBM i are not deserialized to and from
the correct place.                                              

Problem Summary

When installing a fix for an application on i5, you may notice  
that the wrong commands are invoked for custom components. The  
addition of components in a fix may also fail to install or    
appear to hang. This occurrs because the commands and components
that can be installed are limited to what was available in the  
last version of the application that was installed. This was due
to an error unpacking critical files to the appropriate        
location. This fix contains the necessary server side changes.  

Problem Conclusion

The commands and components to be installed in a fix are        
retrieved from the fix being installed so modified components  
and added components should run as expected.
