(Doc ID 1404011.1)

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version: 8.50 to 8.52 - Release: 8.4 to 8.4
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The WebLogic server crashes (ie the WebLogic java process terminates) for no apparent reason.  This occurs when the web server is on a Unix or Linux platform.  There are no errors or signs of problems in PIA_stdout.log or PIA_weblogic.log. However PIA_stderr.log shows this message at time of crash:
     X connection to <machine-name>:0.0 host broken (explicit kill or server shutdown)

The PeopleSoft administrator notices a link between the time they reboot their Unix desktop and when the WebLogic java process terminates.
