Symptoms

Running Oracle JDBC for Rdb with HP Java on OpenVMS, a minor change was made to the XML configuration file for multiprocess thin server. Now receive error:

Configuration file problem at line 57
Element type "server" must be followed by either attribute specifications, ">" or "/>".

Changes

The change was to add two lines near the end of the XML configuration file from:

    ...
    maxClients = "10"
    />
  </servers>
</config>

to:

    ...
    maxClients = "10"
    restrictAccess = "true">
    <allowUser name = "username"/>
    />
  </servers>
</config>
