DPS - Build Up Of CLOSE_WAIT Conns After Setting "allow-unauthenticated-operations:false" (Doc ID 1573174.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 30, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition - Version to [Release 11gR1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


There is a build up of CLOSE_WAIT as reported by netstat.

This will eventually lead to a resource issue if left unchecked.

This issue can be reproduced with the following steps:

1) Install ODSEE

2) Create a new DPS instance using the DSCC (or register the DPS instance in the DSCC after creating by the command line)

3) Disable anonymous client connections using either
  3.1) # dpconf set-server-prop -p <port> -w /tmp/passwd
 - OR -
  3.2) DSCC -> <dps instance> -> Server Configuration -> Client Authentication -> Uncheck "Accept Anonymous Connections From Clients"

4) Save

5) Browse the DPS instance using the console.

6) Use 'netstat' to observe the build up in CLOSE_WAIT connections.

These connections are never cleaned up and will lead to a resource shortage over time.

The problem is not present on DPS or DPS
The issue is present on DPS and DPS
(both Linux and Solaris were tested)
