APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Where invalid values are configured for the X server DISPLAY on
    Red Hat Linux it has been seen that the Agent will produce an
    error such as:
    
    INFO: VirtualAppinstance1 (0): UserLocation: /root/user/X11
    connection rejected because of wrong authentication.
    INFO: VirtualAppinstance1 (0): X connection to localhost:10.0
    broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).
    
    This should be considered an error since the Agent does not make
    use of the X server GUI.
    

Local fix

  • Remove the DISPLAY variable from the system.
    
    (Alternatively correct the DISPLAY variable so there is a valid
    X server connection, which will not be used.)

    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * All users of Rational Test Virtualization Server deployed on *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * If a user attempts to start a stub on a Rational Integration *
    * Tester Agent deployed to a Unix machine that has an invalid  *
    * DISPLAY variable set then the stub will not start correctly. *
    * Test Control Panel will show a failure to deploy. If the     *
    * user examines the Agent log file they will see errors such   *
    * as:                                                          *

    * broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).                   *

Problem conclusion

  • This problem has been resolved in version 8.6.0.1 of Rational
    Integration Tester by ensuring that the DISPLAY variable is
    removed from the environment in the script the Agent uses to
    launch the stub.
