MS 64bit - Setting Global Max_conns >50 Gives "maximum Value Exceeded" (Doc ID 2071813.1)

Last updated on JULY 01, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Messaging Server - Version 7.0.5 to 8.0.1 [Release 7.0.0 to 8.0.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In the description of max_conns Dispatcher option we find the note:

Prior to Messaging Server 7.0.5, the default value was 10, but initial configuration set the option explicitly to 50. As of 7.0.5, the default value is now 50. In Messaging Server 7.2 and earlier, the maximum possible value for this option was unconditionally 50, with attempts to set a value higher than 50 resulting in the value of 50 being used. As of Messaging Server 7.3, the maximum of 50 is only enforced on 32 bit platforms; 64 bit platforms allow any value.

We are using the Oracle Communications Messaging Server 7.0.5.35.0 64bit.  When we update the dispatcher.cnf global value of max_conns greater than 50, it generates an error about "maximum value exceeded".

For example, in dispatcher.cnf, under Global defaults, set max_conns to a value >50:
