E1117: UNIX Listener returned 'unknown' for start on demand mailboxes

Product: nl_dsa
Platform: All UNIX/Linux
Status: Fixed for 6.4, fix available for 6.3
Last updated: 2006-06-15 10:54:58

The DSA (DIWS) listener (nl_dsa) for UNIX/Linux systems could return 'unknown' to a client trying to connect to a start on demand mailbox.

Mailboxes configured for start on demand (GUFT, Gspool etc.) in config.dsa (config.diws) are added to the list of mailboxes waiting for incoming connects when the listener starts, and subsequently whenever the configuration file is updated. Other listening mailboxes are added to the list dynamically when the listening product is started (for example a Glink with a printer that waits for incoming connections) and removed from the list when they terminate. The removal process for a listening mailbox also cleans up the list of listening mailboxes. This clean-up sometimes removed the mailboxes that were configured for start on demand. Clients connecting to a start on demand mailbox would then be rejected with an 'unknown mailbox' message.
