APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • On machines with multiple network interfaces, the user can
    specify NTS_HOST_IP_ADDR=<ipAddr> in notes.ini to tell
    Notes Traveler which address to use.  During start-up, Traveler
    will validate that the IP address matches one of the valid IP
    addresses for one of the network interfaces.  In some cases, the
    Java APIs are reporting that a valid address is not reachable.
    The code in this APAR will allow Traveler to start as long as
    the IP is a valid IP for one of the interfaces even if the Java
    API reports that it is not reachable.
    

Local fix

  • NA
    

Problem summary

  • Notes Traveler server validates the IP address being used by the
    server.  The IP address is required to be accurate for a Highly
    Available (HA) setup.  In some cases, during startup the Java
    API is reporting that the IP address is unreachable.  This seems
    to be a bug in the Java API as the customer indicated the IP is
    valid and functioning.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Notes Traveler server was updated to handle this case as a
    warning and allow the server startup process to continue.  This
    is a work around for a potential JVM bug or even bug in the
    Operating System.
    

Temporary fix
