SMC 7.0 Client Unable to Communicate with ELS 7.0 HTTP Server (Doc ID 1131333.1)

Last updated on JUNE 10, 2019

Applies to:

Sun StorageTek HTTP Server - Version 7.0 to 7.0 [Release 7.0]
Sun StorageTek Enterprise Library Software (ELS) - Version 7.0 to 7.0 [Release 7.0]
Sun StorageTek Storage Management Component (SMC) - Version 7.0 to 7.0 [Release 7.0]
IBM z/OS on System z


SMC 7.0 client cannot communicate with the server.
Messages SMC0217 is issued on the server when SMC client attempts to communicate with the server.
Message SMC0217 indicates a takesocket error.

SMC0217 HTTP Server socket error: Socket=0 Error=takesocket() error=113 (00000071) Reason=strerror=The socket has already been taken SMC comm RC=760
 SMC0217 HTTP Server socket info: Socket=0 Error=MAXCLIENTS limit exceeded SMC comm RC=760

SMC0217 errors occur after SMC server and HTTP Server initialization completes successfully.
The successful initialization messages are:

SMC0211 HTTP Server startup complete
SMC0024 SMC0 subsystem initialization complete; RC=0


Starting with ELS 7.0, HTTP Server runs in the SMC address space instead of a separate started task.


Possible changes that can result in this problem are:

  1. Upgrade to ELS 7.0 from lower release.
  2. New ELS 7.0 install.
  3. Just installed z/OS maintenance.
