Last updated on OCTOBER 17, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Database Gateway for DB2 - Version 10.1.0.5 to 10.2.0.3 [Release 10.1 to 10.2]
IBM z/OS on System z

Symptoms

The Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) fails with Java index errors and NullPointerException during install of the 10.2 version of TG4DB2 on z/OS, via 10.2.0.3 patch set 5742665, per Doc ID 603521.1 and Doc ID 268888.1. 

Had to execute OUI runInstaller with "-ignoreSysPrereqs" and edit file Disk1/stage/install/oraparam.ini  and add "21.01" to ignore z/OS version check, per Doc ID 464181.1.
