InFormServerAdapter Stops Generating Transactions With Error Saying Trial Not Running When Trial is Running (Doc ID 2376873.1)

Last updated on APRIL 05, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Health Sciences InForm - Version 6.1 and later
Oracle Health Sciences InForm Adapter - Version 1.3.7 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
InForm Server Adapter version is really 1.3.8 - it was not available as a choice in MOS.

Symptoms

 After performing an in place upgrade of InForm, pre-existing trials can no longer generate the transaction XML needed for ODM or CIS. Also, if a trial was syncing with CIS, transactions from Clintrial can no longer go back to InForm. The trial is running and users are able to login.

The following error will appear in the InForm event log every 5 minutes.

When syncing from Clintrial to InForm in CIS, the following error will show in the InForm Adapter application server event log:

<TraceRecord xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/2004/10/E2ETraceEvent/TraceRecord" Severity="Error"><TraceIdentifier>http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/library/System.ServiceModel.Diagnostics.TraceHandledException.aspx</TraceIdentifier><Description>Handling an exception.</Description><AppDomain>/LM/W3SVC/1/ROOT/InFormAdapter/TransactionAdapter-2-131656074589085866</AppDomain><Exception><ExceptionType>System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException, System.Web.Services, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a</ExceptionType><Message>Server was unable to process request. ---&amp;gt; Trial <trial name>is Not Running ---&amp;gt; Object reference not set to an instance of an object.</Message><StackTrace>

There will also be an error from InForm in the InForm application server event log periodically saying that it can't determine if the trial is in maintenance.
