DataStage® Release: 11x
Job Type: Parallel
OS: Unix
Additional info: exception in APT_Archive::BadPointer
Hi,

Has anyone had experience with the following error.
Job aborted with following error and it ran fine once after restart.

main_program: Fatal Error: Caught ORCHESTRATE exception in main program: APT_Archive::BadPointer: From: Loading memory archive: Expected class "APT_SchemaFieldListRep" , got class "APT_DMVersion" when loading pointer.

Usually job runs daily fine and never had the issue before and first time got this error.

High level view on this job:

Job read data from oracle tables , does CDC on tables and loads to ODBC.
And also perform lookup,writes to sequential file .


Can some one help on this pls.

Thanks
ArndW

That's the first time I've seen that error. Is this a MPP installation, or was the machine particularly heavily loaded at the time the error occurred?

Did anyone else faced this problem? We are facing this more frequently. Please help me to understand what and where is the issue. The worst part is, issue is intermittent and not able to replicate in lower environment.

Never encountered it myself. I recommend contacting Support.

Similar error being thrown from one job (very infrequently) in our environment:

Fatal Error: Caught ORCHESTRATE exception in parallel process: APT_Archive::BadPointer: From: Loading memory archive: Expected class "APT_SchemaFieldListRep" , got class "APT_DMDescriptor" when loading pointer.

Job that throws this error runs every 5 minutes. Could go for months between "APT_Archive::BadPointer" aborts.

Job contains "Hierarchical Data" stage, one of only two jobs in our environment. Pretty sure use of this stage has something to do with this error.

Information Server 11.5 FixPack 1 Respin 1 (fixpack.is_11_5_0_1.windows.RSP1.160519)

Is this an informational post or are you trying to get help with it?

Craig,

Thanks for the quick reply. Of course, always appreciate more info on how to troubleshoot a weird abort. That being said, happens so infrequently in our environment not sure worth chasing down... This job executes every 5 minutes, and on restart after these failures completes successfully.

Like the Zappa quote, BTW... Here's one for you:
