APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In a few networks/setups, the connection between IBM Sterling
    B2B Integrator and Perimeter Server takes more than 60
    seconds, which is the default wait time of Perimeter Server to
    establish a connection.
    The fix is to cover scenarios which takes longer time.
    

Local fix

  • no workaround
    

Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
    ALL
    
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    SFTP Server adapter fails to start intermittently when connected
    to Perimeter Server in more secure zone.
    
    PLATFORMS AFFECTED:
    ALL
    

Problem conclusion

  • RESOLUTION SUMMARY:
    Made code changes to address this issue where the sftp server
    adapter startup process can wait for longer duration.
    
    As part of addressing this fix we have introduced a property in
    the perimeter.properties file called 'defaultBindTimeout' which
    defaults to 1m.
    
    ## PROPERTY_START
    ## PROPERTY_NAME: defaultBindTimeout
    ## PROPERTY_TYPE: Integer
    ## PROPERTY_DESCRIPTION
    ## Number of milleseconds to wait for starting up the SFTP
    server adapter.
    ## PROPERTY_END
    defaultBindTimeout=60000
    
    This fix will be useful when IBM Sterling B2B Integrator is
    configured to talk to external PS and there is a lag in
    establishing the connection between IBM Sterling B2B Integrator
    and external PS due to network slowness.
