SYMPTOMS

Microsoft Host Integration Server does not generate tracing files for any 32-bit processes that are running on a 64-bit version of Windows.

Note SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS) is a 32-bit process. When you start a package in debug mode, BIDS generates a 32-bit process that runs the package. Therefore, the 32-bit process for a SQL Server Integration Service project may encounter this issue when BIDS is in debug mode.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because the SysWOW32 processes cannot read the registry values that are used by the tracing tools in Host Integration Server.

More information about this hotfix package


To resolve this issue for Microsoft OLE DB Provider for DB2 3.0, follow these steps on a computer that is running Windows Vista or a later version of Windows Vista:
  1. Apply this hotfix package.
  2. For the applications that use the data provider, assign the Read, Modify, and Write permissions to the tracing directory for the administrators, user, or service accounts that run the applications.

    Note If this step is not performed, 0 KB tracing files are usually generated.
  3. Start the application of the 32-bit process by using an administrator account.

    Note If this step is not performed, no tracing files are usually generated.
Note You do not have to follow these steps if you run Microsoft Host Integration Server 2009 or Microsoft Host Integration Server 2010. In these versions of Host Integration Server, Host Integration Server runtime and the Administrator groups have the required permissions to start tracing. The OLE DB Provider for DB2 does not setup these permissions. Therefore, user accounts that start applications do not have the permissions to write the tracing logs, and additional steps are necessary to assign the permissions.
