Partitioning option license required

Hi all,

We are having an issue with partitioning when running our workflows (PowerCenter 8.1). Only a few of our mappings seems to fail with the following error message:

node01_DEV MAPPING TM_6281 ERROR: Partitioning option license required to run sessions with user-defined partition points.

node01_DEV MAPPING TM_6006 Error initializing DTM for session...

It seems to be happening whenever a mapping is using a Union transformation i.e. PowerCenter seems to automatically try to load the target using partitions.

The issue is that we did not purchase the Partition option so I cannot access the Partition tab in the session properties. Session option Dynamic partitioning is set to No. Union transformation Is Partitionable option is set to No. I tried to delete and recreate the session task but it seems to be a default behaviour.

I saw on the INFA forum that there was a similar bug logged for version 7 & 8 with the Aggregator transformation and the following workaround:

Add a new Custom Property to the Integration Service:

AggSupprtWithNoPartLic Yes

Is there a similar workaround for the Union transformation?

Please let me know if I missed anything obvious.

Thanks in advance,
