Tuxedo Application Server Keeps On Returning XAER_RMFAIL, When Starting An XA Transaction, Until Restarted (Doc ID 2152401.1)

Last updated on JULY 03, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Tuxedo - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On Tuxedo , after a failed transaction rolled back the involved server seems to remain in an "unhealthy" state. From that moment on, every time server is called, receives “ -7”  (XAER_RMFAIL) on every xa_start. This situation lasts until server is restarted.

Application server is connected to, and executing xa transactions with, IBM MQ.
