Error description

  • This issue only happens when SAP uses ALE to transfer files
    from SAP to Gentran:Server and there is more than one set of
    outbound connection parameters configured in the SAP
    Configuration.
    
    Intermittently Aleserver.exe is overwriting the IDOC data with
    a status message that should be written to a log file when the
    connection is being re-established with the SAP server. This
    causes the IDOC to fail translation in Gentran:Server.
    
    Symptoms include:
    
    - IDOCs being imported into Gentran:Server are failing
    translation but re-importing them works fine.
    
    - Error data file from translation session or IDOC file
    contains "Established the connection at <date> <time>." in the
    data, usually in an IDOC header record
    

Local fix

  • RTC 369668
    CF/CF
    
    Circumvention: turn off the timer to check for connection in
    Gentran's SAP configurations - Advanced Multi-Port features
    
    1) Open Gentran's SAP Configuration settings
    2) Click Advanced
    3) Disable the box marked "Set timer for checking the
    connection"
    4) Click Save, click OK
    

Problem summary

  • Users Affected:
    Customer using aleserver with the -interval program argument
    parameter.
    
    Problem Description:
    If the -interval argument parameter is small enough that the
    program checks for connection with the SAP server while the
    aleserver is receiving IDocs from the previous cycle, the IDoc
    EDI_DC control record could become overwritten with the trace
    log entry text "Established the connection".
    

Problem conclusion

  • Resolution Summary:
    Correct multithreading within aleserver to handle overlaps
    between connection checking and IDoc reception cycles.
