An ASSERT is seen in the sna.err log: 2012-03-11 08:04:01 EDT 4096-19(0-10) E (example.com) ASSERT: File name = ../../p/sappn/nrtpapi.c Line number = 144 Expression = !NB_MEMCMP(thdr->tcid, LOCAL.my_tcid, S_TCID) Stack: nrt_rtp_receive+278(3292F020,33993048,33993048,1) nrt_receive_proc+1A0(3292F020,1,33993048,0) nba_dispatch_input+294(32941720,33993048,F003F580,49B2F20) nba_dispatch_process+CC(32941720,33993048,F003F620,1) nba_schedule_process+154(32941720,2F580C50,200034E,21A) nba_send_ips+308(30001B3,1,3292F020,0) nhp_rtp_nlp+DF0(3292F020,2F580C50,32924820,2F49B048) nhp_queue_handler+5DC(3292F020,2000,2F580C50,0) nba_dispatch_input+294
The problem occurs when the following all occur: If a node is restarted quickly and low numbered RTP pipes are in use at the point that the node is stopped (eg @R000004) then a VRN partner will not detect the failure and when it polls after the VRN connection is re-established CS/AIX can mix up the old data with data from a new partner. This leads to the ASSERT (which detects the randomised TCID that CS/AIX generates).
Code has been added to ignore the old data.
