StarQuest Data Replicator v5.02 Release Notes

October 2018

Introduction

StarQuest Data Replicator (SQDR) is a replication software product that allows you to copy data between IBM DB2, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL and Informix database environments. You can replicate any table, portion of a table, or view. You can schedule replications to take place at specified intervals or on demand. Replicating data from one database management system to another allows you to:

StarQuest Data Replicator provides:

If you will be using SQDR for snapshot replication, refer to the Quick Start Guide for the StarQuest Data Replicator for detailed information about installing StarQuest Data Replicator for the first time. If you will be using SQDR with its companion product SQDR Plus for incremental replication, refer to the SQDR Plus Quick Start Guide.

After you install the software, refer to the online help for information about configuring and using the Data Replicator. Press F1 or click the Help button in a dialog or on the toolbar to display the online help when using the Data Replicator Manager application.

The following topics are addressed in these Release Notes.

What's New in this Release

This release of the StarQuest Data Replicator introduces the following new features and improvements:

Upgrade Considerations

Important:Data Replicator Manager v4.96 or later can connect only to an SQDR service running v4.96 or later.

Important: If you are upgrading from any version of StarQuest Data Replicator earlier than 4.90, you must run the Data Replicator Configuration to migrate your settings from the registry to the Control database.

Important:After updating to SQDR 4.90, the service will attempt to connect to every configured Source on startup, and will continue to do so on each service startup until it finally makes contact with that Source. If your SQDR configuration contains Sources that are either temporarily or permanently inaccessible, there will be a noticeable delay at startup. You can reduce this delay by changing the Login Timeout value on the Connection Pools panel of Service Properties from the default of 30 seconds to a lower value. However, it is preferable to ensure that all sources are accessible at least once during SQDR service startup, or remove unused Sources.

Important: If you are upgrading from StarQuest Data Replicator 4.0x or 4.1x, you must run the Data Replicator Configuration to update your existing control database to the 4.5 format; either select the checkbox to run the Configuration on the final screen of the installation wizard, or select Data Replicator Configuration from the Program Group, and choose "Use an existing control database and tables". See below for additional upgrade tasks if you are upgrading from SQDR 3.x.

See Upgrade Considerations for SQDR 4.5 for information on upgrading from SQDR prior to 4.5:

The following considerations apply to upgrading from a version of SQDR earlier than 4.01:

 

System Requirements

You can install and run the StarQuest Data Replicator on:

If you are using a 64-bit operating system, we recommend installing the 64-bit version of SQDR. If you are currently running a 32-bit version of SQDR on a 64-bit operating system and decide to upgrade to a 64-bit version of SQDR, see Upgrading to 64-bit SQDR for upgrade instructions.

We recommend installing the latest Windows updates. For Windows Server 2012R2 and windows 8.1, the  April 2014 update rollup for Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2 (2919355) is required.

A minimum screen resolution of 1024 x 768 is recommended when using Data Replicator Manager.

SQDR requires Visual C++ 2017 runtimes. The SQDR installer will install the Microsoft-supplied Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable package if it is not already present on the system. The Microsoft Redistributable package will remain on the system if SQDR is upgraded or uninstalled.

SQDR requires the Universal C Runtime (KB2999226), which is a Windows operating system component typically installed by Windows Update on systems earlier than Windows 10; it can also be downloaded from Update for Universal C Runtime in Windows. If not already present, this component is installed by the SQDR installer as part of the Visual Studio 2017 redistributables. The error api-ms-win-crt-convert-I1-1-0.dll is missing will result if KB2999226 has not been installed.

The following command will display whether KB2999226 has been installed:

C> wmic qfe list brief /format:texttablewsys | findstr KB2999226

The Data Replicator requires a control database in which to store definitions for sources, destinations, and subscriptions. If you are using SQDR Plus to support incremental replication, we recommend using the instance of DB2 LUW Express installed with SQDR Plus. Otherwise, you can use any of the following versions of IBM DB2 for Linux, Unix Windows (LUW) or Microsoft SQL Server for the SQDR control database. You can obtain DB2 Express-C free of charge from http://www.ibm.com/software/data/db2/express-c/download.html. Similarly, you can obtain the Microsoft SQL Server Express free of charge from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads to use as a control database for the Data Replicator.

The control database can be either local or remote. For a remote database, install the appropriate ODBC driver:

You can replicate data to and from any of the following database systems:

IBM Informix Dynamic Server Enterprise or Express Edition 10.0, 11.10, 11.50, 11.70, 12.10
IBM Informix Extended Parallel Server 8.50 and higher
IBM Informix SE 7.25
IBM Informix OnLine 5.20 and higher

For incremental replication, SQDR Plus must be configured for the host database system.

Access to DB2 databases requires the StarSQL ODBC/DRDA driver (v6.2 or later recommended and included as part of the SQDR installation), the IBM DB2 Connect driver, or the IBM i Access for Windows driver (for access to data sources on DB2 for i).

If you use IBM i Access for Windows for accessing a DB2 for i database, install iAccess 7.1 (5770-XE1) with the SI64724 (June 2017) or later service pack. If you use IBM i Access Client Solutions (5733XJ1), the Windows Application Package must be at the June 2017 level or later.

For access to SQL Server, use the ODBC Driver 17.1 for SQL Server, ODBC Driver 13.1 for SQL Server, or SQL Server Native Client 11.

Access to Apache Derby (JavaDB) requires StarSQL 6.20 or later.

PostgreSQL considerations:

When using the psqlODBC driver for PostgreSQL as a destination, we recommend configuring the Advanced panel as follows. See the Help file for a sample DSN-less connection string. We recommend using v10.1 or later of the psqlODBC driver; do not use v9.06.0500.

When using the SQDR bundled ODBC driver for PostgreSQL as a destination, we recommend configuring the Advanced panel as follows. See the Help file for a sample DSN-less connection string.

Oracle considerations:

For more information about the NLS_LANG environment variable, see:
Oracle 11g Appendix C Configuring Oracle Database Globalization Support
Oracle 12c Appendix C Configuring Oracle Database Globalization Support

MySQL considerations:

  Informix considerations:

Salesforce considerations:

In addition, you can use the Data Replicator with other databases if they can be accessed through an ODBC driver that complies with Level 2 of the ODBC 3.51 specification.

Installing and Using the StarQuest Data Replicator Software

Known Issues

MySQL Considerations

Indexes and primary keys on a MySQL source table may appear incorrectly in the subscription wizard; verify that only valid indexes are selected for replication purposes.

Precision Limitation for Oracle CHAR and RAW Column Types

The Oracle ODBC driver driver has a limitation that affects replicating from SQL Server or DB2 columns to an Oracle column of data type CHAR or RAW. Although the Oracle CHAR and RAW data types allow larger values, you must set the precision for the destination column that uses these types to 255 or less. If the source column precision is greater than 255, you can avoid data truncation by changing the destination column to a data type that allows a larger precision value. For character data, change the Oracle destination column data type to VARCHAR or LONG. For binary data, change the data type to LONG RAW.

Oracle Destination (Oracle driver) and Use Unicode Intermediates disables Mutirow Row Fetch and Insert:

If the destination is an Oracle database (using the Oracle ODBC driver) and the SQDR service is configured with Use Unicode Intermediates, the setting for Multirow Fetch and Insert is ignored, and the message "useUnicodeIntermediates disables MultiRow option for replication to Oracle destination" will appear in the replication statistics. Solution: use the SQDR bundled driver or DataDirect driver for Oracle.

Oracle destination limited to only one unsizable LONG mapping

If the destination is an Oracle database, you can replicate only one column that contains an unsizable LONG mapping; this is an Oracle limitation. If your source table contains more than one such column (e.g.multiple columns that map to BLOB or CLOB datatypes), you will need to choose which column to replicate and remove the other columns from the subscription.

Oracle Object Types are not supported
Oracle Object Types (also known as Abstract Data Types (ADT) or user-defined types) are complex compound structures that are not supported using ODBC and thus cannot be replicated by SQDR. You can replicate other data contained in tables with Object Type columns by deleting those columns in the Subscription Wizard.

Incremental Replication of Oracle LOB columns
There is a known issue when performing incremental replication of LOB columns from an Oracle source. When updating the contents of length of a LOB column that is greater than 4000 bytes, you must also update another column of the same row.

BCP error when replicating to SQL Server

Replication to SQL Server may fail in certain situations, such as when there is at least one LOB column n the source table and more than one ''image" column in the target table. You can work around this problem by specifying "Insert using ODBC" rather than BCP in the destination options of the subscription.

Replicating XML columns to and from DB2 for i (iSeries) and DB2 for LUW

When replicating tables containing XML columns to DB2 for i and DB2 for LUW destinations, the following limitations apply:

Replicating NULL-valued XML columns to DB2 for LUW with StarSQL

If you are using StarSQL 6.19 or later to connect to a DB2 for LUW destination and inserting NULL-valued XML data, you will need the fix for one of the following APARS, included in the listed fixpak:

Memory usage of Service increases when communicating with Manager

Leaving the Data Replicator Manager running for extended periods of time could cause a memory management problem in the Replicator Service. To avoid this, we recommend running the Replicator Manager only when you need to configure the service or subscriptions or monitor the replication operations. In addition, the Replication Manager will automatically exit after running for twelve hours.

Saving Subscriptions to AS/400 Member Files

If you encounter a subscription validation error while saving a new subscription that will replicate to a member of a physical file on an AS/400, you may need to cancel the subscription wizard and completely redefine the subscription in order to specify a member for the destination file.

Columns with a DEFAULT value

If the source table has columns that are defined with a DEFAULT value, that information is not preserved when the destination table is created using SQDR.

Solutions:

or

Config: Control database naming

Do not use a hyphen when naming a SQL Server control database; an ODBC syntax error: "Incorrect syntax near 'Control-DB'" will result when sqdrconf attempts to create the control database.

SQDR Service fails to start

If the SQDR Service fails to start with the error "The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.", be sure that the user specified to run the service is authorized to use DCOM. On Windows Server 2008, this can be accomplished by adding the user to the group Distributed COM Users.

MySQL: table not found error

If the name of a MySQL source table contains a period, the table will appear in the list of available source tables, but selecting it for replication will result in a "table not found" error. Either rename the table or create a view over the table and choose the view for replication.
