DB schema name issue for ADM and VBD during DSM installation



User is installing a new Pega 7.1.7 + DSM + NBAM 7.1.2 environment in preparation of migrating existing PRPC 6.x applications to Pega 7.

User is on WebSphere and DB2 9.7 FP7 on AIX.

For maximum flexibilty, the following schemas have been created with their own tablespaces:


After installing ADM and VBD, the WebSphere log files show that the DB connection is using <DB2_USER>.<TABLE_NAME> instead of <SCHEMA>.<TABLE_NAME> for ADM and VBD.

Disabling the startup of both the ADM.ear and VBD.ear files prove that the server starts up with no errors.

The problem may be due to incorrect logic in the application.
For Oracle, the schema and user names are the same, but this is not the case for DB2.
