MWA Session Gets Terminated If The Same User Logs In From Different Session

(Doc ID 1906651.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 01, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Mobile Application Server - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In MWA if the user tries to make second login to the same port then his first session gets terminated automatically.

This happens only when second user session is made on the same MWA server/port on which first session is running. If the port number is different then it allows multiple session which is expected as it does not lead to any data corruption as per <Note: 889183.1>

Steps to Reproduce:
Start MWA Server on port 10200
From a DOS window, telnet to port 10200 and login as a MWA user.
   
Then start a second DOS window, and telnet to port 10200
Log in as the same MWA user.
The first session gets the message:

 Connection to host lost.



The second telnet session window gets:

 Warning
 There is an old session.
 Continue with this old session?


It's a big impact in prod if the first session gets terminated abruptly. Our expectation is, the second user should get "already signon" message if the user tries to login for the second time and it should keep the first session as is. It should not kill/terminate the first session.
