You may encounter bad performance while mass inserting Data into a DB2 Table.

By default, the nagling is enabled on the TCP sockets. This improves overall performance, but it might briefly delay transmission of smaller packets. If the delay is undesirable or unacceptable (like delayed ACK), then you can add this entry to the registry to disable nagling only for the MsDb2 Provider :

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Host Integration Server\Data Integration\
and/or
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Host Integration Server\Data Integration\

Add the name TcpNoDelay to the subkey, set the data type to the REG_SZ data type, and then set the value to Yes.

For Host Integration Server 2009, you need to install first the following KB : KB978452

For Host Integration Server 2010, 2013, you only need to add the registry entry.

Over the last months I’ve read a lot of articles why the MQSC Adapter is missing in the BizTalk Administration Console, but none of them are complete.

Installation guide
So in order to install the adapter, you need to install the client tool from HIS (Microsoft BizTalk Adapters for Host Systems) and you will also need the to install the IBM WebSphere MQ Client or the IBM WebSphere MQ Transactional Client (which is part of the IBM WebSphere MQ Server).

Be aware that for any BizTalk version prior to BizTalk 2009 you can only run this adapter as a 32bit. You need to install the following KB939202 to force it to run as a 32bit on a 64bit environment.

Installation order

  1. Install the Microsoft BizTalk Server
  2. After the installation of the Microsoft BizTalk Server, don’t forget to configure the BizTalk Server using the Configuration Tool (if you skip the configuration, the BizTalk Adapters (MQSC, HostApps, DB2) will not be installed correctly
  3. Install the latest Microsoft BizTalk Server Cumulative Updates
  4. Install the IBM WebSphere MQ Client or the IBM WebSphare MQ Transactional Client
  5. Install the latest IBM WebSphere MQ FixPacks
  6. Install the Microsoft BizTalk Adapters for Host Systems (1.0 : 2006, 2.0 : 2009) or the Microsoft Host Integration Server 2010, 2013 and check the BizTalk Adapters to install
  7. Install the latest Microsoft Host Integration Server Cumulative Updates

Troubleshooting

  • You are getting an error that the MQSC COM+ are not correctly registered

Check if the MQSC Com+ Object is registered (Administrative Tools => Component Services => My Computer => COM+ Applications => Microsoft.BizTalk.Adapter.MQSC

If it’s missing you can try the following to register the COM+ Objects again :

  • Go to the “Programs and Features”
  • Modify the Host Integration Server Installation by using the repair feature

If it’s still missing, please try the following commands :

  • %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\RegSvcs.exe /u “%snaroot%\Microsoft.BizTalk.Adapter.MQSC.dll” %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\RegSvcs.exe “%snaroot%\Microsoft.BizTalk.Adapter.MQSC.dll”

If this is a 64-bit box, and they are installing the 64-bit MQSC adapter, then the commands would be slightly different (“Framework64” instead of “Framework”), so they would be:

  • %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\RegSvcs.exe /u “%snaroot%\Microsoft.BizTalk.Adapter.MQSC.dll” %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\RegSvcs.exe “%snaroot%\Microsoft.BizTalk.Adapter.MQSC.dll”
  • The MQ Transactional is not working and you are getting an MQRC 2354

Check if you have installed the latest IBM WebSphere MQ FixPack : http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IC81688

We recently worked on a support case where a customer was using the Data Access Tool (DAT), which is included with Host Integration Server and the Microsoft OLE DB Provider for DB2 that is included in SQL Server Feature Packs, We often suggest that you use the DAT to create the connection string (UDL) that is used to connect to your IBM DB2 systems and then to run the Sample Query to the connection string to see if you are able to make a basic query without error.

In this case, the data returned by the Sample Query was incomplete.

The Sample Query issues a query against the SYSTABLES table in DB2. SYSTABLES is a system catalog tables that contains information about each table that is defined in the database. When you run the Sample Query in the DAT, it sends a query to DB2 to get a list of the tables that are defined in the Schema that is specified in the connection string.
