APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • discovered that it's not a missing timeout value that caused
    the NPE.  It appears we were referencing a config object that
    was null when this socket factory was called.
    

Local fix

  • Work-around (changed import file) and hot fix provided
    

Problem summary

  • Users Affected:
    Customers upgrading from Sterling Secure Proxy 2.x to SSP 3.4
    
    Problem Description:
    Customer upgraded from SSP 2.x to SSP 3.4 and imported the
    configuration from SSP 2.x. When running Connect:Direct Secure+
    sessions outbound through SSP, they get MSGCSP057E "Snode
    session could not start to intended route" and a
    NullPointerException in the ProxyServerCDImpl class. The import
    utility did not provide an empty property tag for the C:D
    adapters, and the engine got the NPE failure trying to access
    it.
    
    Platforms Affected:
    All
    

Problem conclusion

  • Resolution Summary:
    Now handle the case where no properties are defined in the C:D
    adapter config file and avoid the NullPointerException.
    Workaround is to save each C:D adapter configuration
    individually after the upgrade, as the empty property tags are
    generated correctly during the save operation.
