Error description

  • The Notes Traveler server has a diagnostic command which can be
    used in a Traveler High Availability pool and which binds a
    user's monitor to a single server in the pool.  Once bound, all
    of the user's sync requests should come to this server until the
     user is "unbound".  This command is:
    
    tell traveler bind enable <userid>
    
    This binding should persist even if the user's server is
    shutdown and restarted and an error in the Traveler server logic
    for this command is preventing this from working properly.
    Prior to this fix, if a user was bound to a Traveler server
    using this command, and then this server was restarted, there
    was a good chance that the user would be moved to another active
    server.
    
    Note that this fix is very specific to this command which is not
    normally needed except in some extreme diagnostic situations in
    the first place.
    

Local fix

  • Do not use the bind command or if needed, do not restart the
    server where the user is bound.  If the server must be
    restarted, manually issue the bind command again.
    

Problem summary

  • Traveler bind command can be useful for troubleshooting
    purposes.  It restricts the user specified to a single Traveler
    server in an HA pool.  A bug in the processing made the command
    so it was not persistent if the server in question was
    restarted.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Notes Traveler server was updated to make the bind command
    persistent across restart.  To remove bind use tell traveler
    bind remove <username> command.
