FIX: You may intermittently receive the "SQLSTATE: 08S01, SQLCODE: -605" error message when you perform distributed transactions over TCP/IP by using the OLE DB Provider for DB2 in Host Integration Server 2004


When you perform distributed transactions over TCP/IP by using the OLE DB Provider for DB2 that is included with Microsoft Host Integration Server 2004, you may intermittently receive the following error message:
When this problem occurs, the network connection is closed between the system that is using the OLE DB Provider for DB2 and the remote system that is running IBM DB2.

SQLCODE -605 is defined as DB2OLEDB_COMM_SOCKET_REC_FAILED. This error indicates that the OLE DB Provider for DB2 could not receive the data.


This problem occurs when the Host Integration Server TCP/IP Resync service (DRDAResync.exe) receives chained Distributed Data Management (DDM) code points from a remote DB2 system to roll back a failed transaction. The TCP/IP Resync service does not correctly parse chained DDM code points.
