Error description

  • The current behaviour is as follows:
    
    07/02/21 09:36:49  DR: new type = RSS
    07/02/21 09:37:50  DR: Trying to connect to server,
    primary_server. If the specified server is not in Online mode,
    bring it to Online mode.
    07/02/21 09:37:50  Data replication type and state information
    reset. To start DR, use the 'onmode -d' command and wait for the
    pair to be operational, before shutting down the database server
    
    As can been seen, the request to make this an RSS server was
    issued and after 61 seconds the message stating trying to
    connect was produced; this message should be produced when the
    request to make this an RSS server is issued. Currently, the
    message is produced after what appears to be INFORMIXCONTIME
    default (i.e. 60 seconds).
    
    If the request to make the RSS server FAILS, then there should
    be a message stating "unable to connect to the primary, please
    confirm primary online AND re-issue the request to make this an
    RSS". Currently there is no reporting of error codes for
    establishing a potential cause of failure to connect to the
    PRIMARY.
