Symptoms


Sample Environment:
-----------------
Tools 8.51.03
FSCM 9
Production environment
synchronous messaging with a 3rd party

Issue:
---------
The site upgraded to tools 8.51.03 from 8.49.09. Integration with external vendor has stopped working.  The node set up for this integration (Z_SCHOOL_SPECIALTY) is not pingable.  When attempting to ping the node, the following error is received. This error did not occur prior to the tools upgrade.

Error:
-------
Cannot establish HTTP connection (158,2842).

 

Also, check PIA_stdout.log (or log file "NTservice-<domain_name>-PIA.log" if using Windows) for error similar to the following.



 Replication:
-------------
The ping node error can be replicated when pinging node from PeopleTools -> Integration Broker -> Integration Setup - Nodes.

The external integration page is per below.
PeopleSoft -> eProcurement -> Create Requisition-> Web, "School Specialty Online" (this is a third party vendor the site had integrated with); instead of going to the site (as it did previously, before upgraded to tools 8.51.03), now it gives an error.

Impact:
-------
The issue is affecting integration with the third party vendor when attempting to procure items.
