All IDAA messages are presented in the z/OS system log as DSNX881I messages. These messages have a Message ID & Severity. Many also have an embedded CHCxxxxxx message id.
However, many messages get reported under Message ID 20, and these can be E, W, or I severities.
There is one message, which is a 20 W, that often gets produced in sets for multiple columns of a UNICODE table. Example:
DSNX881I -D2UA 20 W 23591 (2019-11-09 12:59:17 UTC)
D2U1IDAA(192.168.250.8) Id: 9035 Subscription: ACCEL_DWA89D5I
Message: IBM InfoSphere Data Replication adjusted the source data image to fit into the target column MLCC_BRANCH_ID from table DWAD2U1DDF.TBBER_MLINK_CCAUTH-UID_012D0171-REPLICATION. The implicit transformations generated warnings. Please take corrective actions to ensure that no warnings are logged. The data in column MLCC_BRANCH_ID has been converted from source character set encoding :US-ASCII: to target character set encoding :UTF-8:. Originator:
Points on this message:
So, the Big Idea, actually suggested by an IBMer, is to downgrade these messages to an "I" severity.
Alternatively, I think it might be better to completely stop generating these messages. (If there is no corrective action to be taken, and all the data is being replicated just fine, then why write the message?)
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||Any customer who wants to put UNICODE tables in IDAA|
How should it work?
Either downgrade the messages to "I" severity
