APAR Error Description / Circumvention
New GID value is generated for an existing user profile during
RSTUSRPRF and the user profile has a GID on the save media but
not on the system.
CORRECTION FOR APAR SE75718 :
A change will be made to restore the GID value for a user
profile from the save media instead of generating a new GID
value, if possible. The GID value from the save media will not
be restored if:
- The user profile already has a GID value.
- The user profile on the system has a group profile.
- The GID value on the save media is already in use by another
user profile on the system.
CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE75718 :
THE FOLLOWING ARE SUPERSEDED SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS. IF THE SUPERSEDED
PTF HAS ALREADY BEEN APPLIED AND ITS SPECIAL INSTRUCTION FOLLOWED,
IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO FOLLOW THAT SPECIAL INSTRUCTION AGAIN.
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI70902 :
For a complete fix, the PTF should be loaded and applied to both nodes
of the Db2 Mirror pair. It is not necessary to apply the fix to both
nodes of the pair at the same time, but the problem could occur on a
node that does not have the fix applied.
The *FCNUSG error entries on the Object Tracking List (OTL) must be
removed before Db2 Mirror will resume. The entries can be deleted from
the GUI or using the SQL service. To delete the entries using the SQL
service, do the following:
1) Note the Tracking Group Number of the *FCNUSG entry on the OTL.
2) Run the following SQL statement, where 'NNN' is the Tracking Group
CALL QSYS2.CHANGE_RESYNC_ENTRIES(system_object_schema => 'QSYS',
system_object_type => '*FCNUSG',
resync_number => 'NNN',
resync_entries => 1)
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI69716 :
This PTF includes an exit program that adds new messages to the QCPFMSG
message file in QSYS and installed secondary languages.
If additional languages are installed after the PTF is applied, then
you will need to do the following: CALL QSYS/QSYAPM01
If you are a multiple system user, and intend on installing the PTF on
the host system, then saving and restoring the system onto other
systems, then you need to do the following on the other/non host
systems: CALL QSYS/QSYAPM01
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI70767 :
If a Restore User Profile (RSTUSRPRF) has been done on an IBM i 7.4
system with Db2 Mirror configured prior to applying this PTF, the
following remediation steps are required after applying the PTF:
1) Delete any user profile error entries on the Object Tracking List
(OTL) that contain 'RSTUSRPRF user_name' in the Description field. Use
the Db2 Mirror GUI to delete the entries.
2) Resume Db2 Mirror using the GUI.
3) Redo the RSTUSRPRF. You MUST use the same Save Security Data
(SAVSECDTA) media as the original RSTUSRPRF. Do not use a SAVSECDTA
media that was created after doing a RSTUSRPRF with Db2 Mirror
configured and without the PTF applied.
THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
