After upgrading to a new release of CA IDMS, executing IDMSDBAN can produce the message 598516:
598516 - DBKEY 0/80310:5 LI RECORD LENGTH NE SS RECORD LENGTH (FLR)
Technote RI11168 indicates that these errors cause no run-time problem and that they will be resolved the next time a journal or table definition is updated in the catalog.
This document identifies steps to explicitly resolve these messages before then, if that is desired.
Release: 18.5 and above
The error 598516 is discussed in technote RI11168. The technote indicates that the errors do not cause any problem at run-time. However, if you wish to resolve the errors you will need to alter either the journal or table definitions in the catalog or both. You can alter the journal entries as follows:
It is possible this will resolve all of the DC598516 messages from DBAN.
If this does not resolve the problem, then you will have to do a similar sequence for a table definition that is *not* associated with the SYSTEM schema. Because of internal security, it is not possible to issue an ALTER on any table defined with the SYSTEM schema.
A DB002028 error will result if the steps below are attempted against a table belonging to the SYSTEM schema. However, if you find another table that is not associated with the SYSTEM schema, you can do the following:
As an alternative, you could also simply add a new table, then drop it, which should also correct any remaining problem if the steps with the journals do not rectify the DC598516 errors.
Technical note RI11168 describes the situation in which DC598516 error messages can be issued by IDMSDBAN when run against a catalog area, as well as how they may be resolved through normal processing.
