A user is testing failover scenario between two BRM servers. If the first server is down, the request is redirecting to the second server.

To achieve this, the F5 Load Balancer is continuously checking the health of the servers by telnet command. If it finds that the first server is down, it does the failover.

This causes the following error to be logged in the cm pinlog:

E Wed Jul 21 16:45:01 2010 hostname cm:18318 cm_login_pw001.c(21):146  1:hostname:cm:18187:-146143008:0:1279745074:0 bad 1st pcp_receive, err 50
