32-bit Startup Option
In the QXO start-sess.sh file, a new parameter can be appended to the -param entries to indicate that QXO will process rowids as 32-bit. This optional parameter looks like this:
The default is no, so it can be omitted.
QXO runs on version 10.1B, which processes rowids as 64-bit; earlier versions of Progress send rowids as 32-bit.
By default, QXO converts all incoming 32-bit rowids to 64-bit. However, users that are upgrading from QXO versions prior to version 1.4 must run a conversion routine to convert all rowids stored in the database—that is, the link to the business object message—to 64-bits.
Because this conversion can take a long time to complete—especially if the QXO system has been operational for a long time—this parameter setting is provided as a workaround until a suitable time is found to perform the conversion and/or archive the old data.
This is a system-wide setting, so if an QAD Enterprise Applications system was using 64-bit rowids and QXO was processing them as 32-bit, erroneous results may arise.
