RAP import generates incorrect DDL for Sample database on z/OS



PRException occurs on importing RAP with tables mapped to a Sample database when generating the DDL.

Error Messages

252 INFO [stdout] (Log4j2-AsyncLoggerConfig-1) Caused by: DB2 zOS logical database name must be specified for Next TableSpace Name routines. Missing setting for Sample.

Steps to Reproduce

Import Sample Data RAP file (for example, CPMHC_713_SampleDatabase).

Root Cause

In Pega 7.3.1, the ability to create tablespace and AUX tables DDL for a Db2 for z/OS database is added to the Import wizard. For a Database-Admin-DB-Name (D-A-DB-Name) rule for a Db2 for z/OS database, Dynamic System Settings (DSS) are required. For PegaRULES and PegaDATA databases, Dynamic System Settings are set up as part of an installation or upgrade. To use this feature for other D-A-DB-Name rules, the database configuration properties must be set up within Pega using prpcUtils.


Perform the following local-change:

Specify the below parameter in the file:

Settings For z/OS Config Import Tool

  1. Full path to file containing DB2 z/OS site-dependent properties (the required properties are in scripts/config/db2zos/<path to file>
  2. Create settings for #Data-Admin-DB-Names (for example, DBName1,DBName2).

    pega.zos.database.names=<comma-delimited list of D-A-DB-Names>
  3. Run the prpcUtils importZosConfig.
