    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * If the application is sending two or more adapter invocation *
    * requests without first establishing the connection with the  *
    * server,  two sessions may be created for the requests. As a  *
    * result, responses to security challenges may be sent to the  *
    * wrong session and the client authentication may fail,        *
    * preventing the client from invoking the adapters. If the     *
    * realm that failed is the device no provisioning realm, the   *
    * error "received bad token from client" is logged at the      *
    * server.                                                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * -                                                            *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • The server now allows the client to respond to non-provisioning
    device authentication challenges and authenticity challenges
    more than once. This allows the client and the server to
    "synchronize" with one session, and the challenges can be
    verified successfully.
