Messaging Server - Idle Connections Are Not Released After Replacing A Load Balancer (Doc ID 1670920.1)

Last updated on MAY 15, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Messaging Server - Version 7.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Idle connections are not being closed / released after we replaced a load balancer.

We are in a process of replacing a load balancer within our infrastructure.  When moving the mail exchanger, we see the connections to the LDAP server and Brightmail anti-spam stays up.  They are never closed when leaving the old load balancer and a new connection is created when the network comes back up on the new load balancer.

These old connections are only released when we shut down the application.  They don't timeout and it doesn't look like the OS, Solaris 10, sees them as a timeout.
