Error description

  • TEMS / Basic Services 6.23.01 and 6.22.07 changed the behavior
    of KDEB_INTERFACELIST. With KDEB_INTERFACELIST=x.x.x.x , that
    is, with KDEB_INTERFACELIST configured having only one device,
    Basic Services does an application-specific bind to that one
    network interface rather than an anonymous bind. Prior to this
    change, only KDEB_INTERFACELIST WITH THE "!" OPERATOR (as in
    KDEB_INTERFACELIST=!x.x.x.x) would result in an application-
    specific bind.  This change in behavior will be removed.  Only
    use of the exclamation operator will trigger an application-
    specific bind to a single interface.

    6.23.01.00 and follow-on APAR IV19595 (in 6.23.02.00)
    changes the behavior of KDEB_INTERFACELIST.  This change in
    behavior may result in product communication failures with
    down-level Tivoli Monitoring products. The behavior change
    is triggered by configuration of KDEB_INTERFACELIST with
    only a single hostname or IP address; when this is the case,
    the product performs an application-specific bind rather
    than the expected anonymous bind in socket operations.  This
    behavior occurs without regard to the presence or absence of
    the exclamation-point prefix ("!") in KDEB_INTERFACELIST
    configuration.
    
    Additional symptoms: The monitoring server will shut itself
    down with no error messages, and you may also see the
    following messages in the RKLVLOG:
    
    Error(s) detected in KDCSSITE(1):
    "IP.PIPE:your.hostname.COM"
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code was changed to perform an application-specific bind
    ONLY when the exclamation-point prefix ("!") is used in the
    KDEB_INTERFACELIST configuration.
