Last updated on MAY 30, 2017

Information in this document applies to any platform.


UBE R31410 ends in error when being submitted to the Job Queue getting an Error State when timing out after an 1 hour and the Call Object Kernel process is attached to Kanban Process (DcLink Process).

 UBE log appended to CallObject Kernel log (namely JDEDEBUG.log):

--UBE--[6]-- ubeReport_EntryPoint START
--UBE--[0]-- Unable to initialize
                (COBK) KERNEL type = KERNEL_NET
                (COBK) INSERT INTO SVM7334.F986110 (JCJOBQUE, JCJOBPTY, JCJOBSTS, JCENHV, JCUSER, JCPSWD, JCJOBTYPE, JCSBMDATE, JCSBMTIME, JCJOBNBR, JCEXEHOST, JCORGHOST, JCPROCESSID, JCACTDATE, JCACTTIME, JCSRVBLOBA, JCFUNO, JCPRTQ, JCFNDFUF1, JCFNDFUF2) VALUES ('DCSHOP','5','E','DUA7334','DCLINK7','******',' ',112276,90655.000000,251490.000000,'nzaxs26ch','nzaxs26ch',24182950.000000,112276,90655.000000,LONGVARBINARY_DATA,'UBE','6010','Printer In BLOB','R31410_DC0018_251490_PDF')



  • As defined in UDC H93/LL (UBE Logging Level), it is important to check log with key words "--UBE--[0]" because UBE kernel represent log.
  • Job Status (F986110.JCJOBSTS) is written through UBE Kernel.
  • Additional information on UBE logging level as defined in UDC H93/LL (UBE Logging Level)

Same issue is happening in client's environment in handling Kanban process which callobject kernel is calling R31410.

1. Log in to ERP8 (e.g., JPD7334 where default UBE and BSFN are mapped to server)
2. (G3115) P3157 - Kanban consumption then look for existing Kanban
3. Highlight it and (row exit) Check Out (which submits R31410 to server)
4. Log out
5. Log in (so same user handle attaches to exiting callobject kernel process)
6. Look for Kanban through P3157 and highlight to (row exit) Check In (this is to check out again so if there is another kanban skip this)
7. Highlight it and (row exit) Check Out
8. Go to WSJ and verify that Submitted Job R31410 ends in error --UBE--[0]-- Unable to initialize
  : It is working fine in our testing environment



Upgraded DSI version to DcLink7 which request Kanban processing through XML request in logic server.

By default, timeout settings for DSI integration is 1 hour. Now issue is coming DSI process got timeout and new connection got associated same CallObject Kernel process ID then this DSI routine always fails.
