Two AutoVue Severs 21.0.0 are configured to load balance. Each AutoVue Server has the default process pool (DocServer) size set to 4 which is the default. Now one a users is able to open up to 4 files ( up to the number of docservers) , when he  tries to open the 5'th file AutoVue Applet throws the following error :

java.rmi.NotBoundException: Cache

The console of the primary AutoVue server shows that all files are served by the primary Server.

Steps to Reproduce:

Note : Assume that each AutoVue Server has 4 DocServers

  1. Configure two AutoVue Servers in load balance mode ( as instructed in the AutoVue Client Server Administrator guide) 
  2. Have user1 from machine A open the first  4 documents (each document on a separate Applet) which works fine until now
  3. When this same user1 Attempts to open the 5th file the A pop up error message shows up in the 5th Applet which reads : java.rmi.NotBoundException: Cache
  4. Notice that all 4 files have been serviced from the primary AutoVue Server.
