Access Server Hangs On Error "Obxerces-C21.Dll" And Error "Exception during DB runtime code" (Doc ID 864897.1)

Last updated on JUNE 07, 2017

Applies to:

COREid Access - Version:
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The Access server hangs on an obxerces-c21.dll error. At the same time the Access Server log contains errors on connecting to the Directory servers.

The Windows Event Log shows that the webgates and ASDK are not able to contact the Access Servers.
Access Servers are unreachable. Similar message can be seen in WebGate Oblog:

When the error occurs (both obxerces-c21.dll and ldap connection errors), It occurs first on one Access
Server which will then hang (but not terminate). This means that no requests are sent to that
server by the frontends. A few hours later the same thing happens to the second Access Server (both
obxerces-c21.dll and ldap connection errors). This causes the second access server process to hang
and the frontend-servers can no longer connect to any Access Servers.

This happens under load when resources were protected using the Anonymous Authentication scheme with "Deny on not protected" set and the user store is Microsoft Active Directory.
