Scenario 1:

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

The site upgraded to tools 8.51.03 from 8.49.09.  Integration with external vendor has stopped working.  The external node is not pingable.  When attempting to ping the node, the following error is received. This error did not occur prior to the tools upgrade.

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.

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

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