APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • According to the manual you can set the maximum number of
    concurrent session per adapter however it doesn't seem to work
    that way, rather it appears to work at a Global level.
    

Local fix

  • STRRTC - 351025
    MB/RJ
    Circumvention: None
    

Problem summary

  • When multiple SFTP adapters are defined on one engine, each
    adapter uses the combined active session count of all adapters
    to determine if its session count is reached.  For example if
    Adapter1 is defined with a max session count of 1 and Adapter2
    is defined with a count of 3, if one session starts on Adapter2,
    no sessions may start on Adapter 1. Or if one session starts on
    Adapter1 and 2 sessions start on Adapter2, a third session will
    not start on Adapter2.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Updated the SSH toolkit, which contains the fix to correctly
    handle the session counts between adapters.
    

Temporary fix

  • Without the fix applied, you may run each SFTP adapter in
    its
    own engine to ensure it can have its own maximum session count
    value.
