Replication: Corrupt Dates in Logs

Post by Steve Vincent » Thu Aug 04, 2011 4:13 pm

Long story cut short; has anyone who runs replication found issues where some log entries on the destination server for attribute value changes have a corrupt replication date where the year is stated as 0000?

I'm taking a long time to narrow it down and get a reproducable model for IBM to test, but i can be sure that;
  • logs on the source server are 100% OK in every case
  • logs on the destination appear to be 50/50 split of OK or corrupt (no obvious pattern)
  • only changes made in bulk (ie via TI) & on large-ish dims (5000+) seem to be affected
  • no data is affected in this way, only attribute values
The problem it causes is if you have a chain of servers (A to B to C) where changes are made in A. They will replicate to B OK but the corrupt date in B's logs means the replication to C will miss those transactions.

Much longer explaination, hopefully with an example, to come later once i finish swearing at my PC and IBM....
If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator.
