SARM was crashing with a "No free messages" error due to Port Conflict (Doc ID 1620415.1)

Last updated on JULY 19, 2017

Oracle Communications ASAP - Version 7.0.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


A Port conflict is happenning between the OCI connection and the ASAP servers (Ex. JNEP ). SARM was crashing every 30 minutes with a "No free messages" error.

The issue can reproduced as below:

 1. Start ASAP
 2. Run pfiles on the NEP to see which random OCI port it had chosen
 3. Update tbl_asap_srp with the random port from step 2
 4. Restart WebLogic and SARM, but leave NEP running.
 5. Observe that WebLogic nohup logs shows a BindException
 6. SARM started flooding the event log with “RPC failed” and “EOF or Hangup Encountered” events. After about 10 minute, SARM exited with the “No free messages” error
