DB2 - Problem description

Problem IC76386 Status: Closed

BIND FILES UNDER SQLLIB/BND DIRECTORY MAY NOT GET UPGRADED BY FIXPACK
INSTALL ON WINDOWS IF MODIFIED BY A SPECIAL BUILD

product:
DB2 FOR LUW / DB2FORLUW / 910 - DB2
Problem description:
If a special build was applied to the system and the special 
build contains special versions of .bnd or .lst files under 
under the SQLLIB/BND folder, they may not get upgraded by the 
Fixpack install. 
 
This happens because the files under SQLLIB/BND are not 
versioned.  The Windows Installer architecture will only 
replace unversioned files if they have not been modified since 
the last install.  Since a special build may contain fixes in 
files 
under SQLLIB/BND, Windows Installer will not upgrade them. 
 
To avoid this issue, this APAR will introduce file versioning to 
the files under the SQLLIB/BND directory.  This way it will 
enforce Windows Installer to upgrade the files regardless if 
they were modified or not.
