Known Errors

These are the known errors in our products, logged as reported with versions and platforms affected as well as corrections and work-arounds.

This list is largely historical, since it records all problems that have been reported throughout G&R history. Only the most recently reported problems still exist, unless you are using a very old copy of the product, in which case you should update the product to the most recent version.

E0917: Ggate, R6.1 client identification parameter -idt failed

Product: Ggate
Platform: UNIX/Linux
Status: Fixed for R6.2, fix available for R6.1
Last updated: 2003-09-19 10:20:30

In R6.1.0 the client identification type parameter (-idt
GUID/IP/any) regressed to its earlier form (-uid GUID/IP/any) in
the UNIX/Linux version of Ggate. This is corrected for R6.2, and
a fix is issued for R6.1 (included in R6.1.1 when released).
Client identification is needed when a workstation crashes
without terminating mainframe sessions, and is using a network
with no keep-alive so the crash is not detected by Ggate. On
restart the client needs to terminate earlier sessions with
kill-all. The parameter defaults to 'any', which means that if a
Ggate client that issues a 'kill-all' has a GUID it will be used
to find other sessions from the same client to be killed. If the
client has no GUID (earlier releases of Glink) then the IP
address will be used to identify sessions from the same client.
Note that IP-address identification will fail in networks where
IP addresses are allocated randomly to clients as needed, and
earlier sessions will not be killed. Note further that some
firewalls and terminal servers allocate the same IP address to
all of the clients, and a kill-all from any would kill all. The
kill-all has a safety limit of 10 sessions to avoid this
problem. If the IP address is used for identification, and there
are more than 10 sessions from it, then the kill-all is disabled.

Work-around, use -uid if needed to force 'IP' or 'GUID' instead
of 'any'.
