RC Compare for DB2 for z/OS

Issue/Introduction

The DDLCOMP step in the Compare customization task (ssid0001) may fail with the following error messages:

RMA543E THE COLUMN LENGTHS IN CONSTRAINT CREATOR EXCEED 255
      CHARACTERS.                                          

RMA543E THE COLUMN LENGTHS IN CONSTRAINT (PRIMARY KEY) EXCEED 255
      CHARACTERS.                                                

   POST INSTALL ANALYSIS COMPLETED,  RETURN CODE =    8              
                                                                     
RCM00055: The ANALYSIS phase has completed with errors.  Please check
          the MSGFILE DD for more information on the error.          

Cause

The RMA543E errors are a result of RC/Compare failing to identify the correct Db2 version.

This can occur when there is a module mismatch between the Xmanager runtime load library and the Product runtime load library.

Environment

Release : 20.0

Component : DB2 Common Components

Resolution

Check that Xmanager is using the same CDBALOAD as the Post Install job?

If not then you will need to recycle Xmanager pointing it to the correct runtime load library.

When there is any maintenance to the Xmanager authorized services, then there will be holddata to follow to run the Xmanager started task with latest runtime libraries to avoid the module mismatch errors.

For example for PTF LU01362:

++HOLD (LU01362) SYSTEM FMID(CINSK00)

To implement the PTF:                                                   
1. Stop product collections.                                            
2. Stop the Xmanager task.                                              
3. Update the runtime library.                                          
4. Restart the Xmanager task.                                           
                                                                        
Important!                                                              
Please do not apply maintenance to the Xmanager runtime libraries with  
Xmanager active as it may result in a discrepancy between               
dynamically loaded components and statically loaded components.         
This may result in unpredictable behavior with CA-DB2 tools and/or may  
compromise the operating system/DB2 including possible failures.
