APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If DataPower is managing connections over SSH and using
    persistent connections in the same respect, if a timeout occurs
    around the reuse it may cause an unexpected reload.  This is
    more likely to happen with a SFTP Poller FSH having a delay
    between polls equal to the persistent connection idle timeout.
    

Local fix

  • Disable persistent connections in the SSH Client Profile object
    attached to the SFTP Front Side Poller.
    

Problem summary

  • Affected is the use of the SFTP Poller Front Side Handler and
    the SSH Client Profile.
    
    Prior to the fix in certain timing situations, DataPower might
    restart.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
