Error description

  • When searching for available adapters under the given group
    name, IBM Sterling B2B Integrator returns adapters that
    cannot be used due to the fact that mandatoryNode parameter has
    been placed in process data.
    
    
    When searching for eligible adapters that belong to a group,IBM
    Sterling B2B Integrator checks if the adapter is enabled and
    then makes decision based on node load, but does not check
    mandatory node restriction.

    Problem Description:
    
    Using two node Sterling Integrator 5.2.6.3_1 cluster on Solaris
    5.11 11.3 sun4v sparc, it is observed that HTTP Client Begin
    Session Service intermittently fails with exception
    "ServicesControllerImpl could not find an available adapter by
    group name [RB_PROXY_HTTP_ADAPTER_WATHEQ]".
    
    After further investigation it was established that IBM
    Sterling B2B Integrator, when searching for available adapters
    under given group name, will return adapter that can't be used
    due to the fact that mandatoryNode parameter has been
    placed in process data.
    It looks like when searching for eligible adapters that belong
    to a group SI checks if the adapter is enabled and then makes
    decision based on node load, but doesn't check mandatory node
    restriction.
