Entera 3.2 patch release 44: Aix 4.1

Bug Description:
Using the Entera 3.2 Service pack of dce on Aix 4.1 machine, customers find two bugs that occur if setting the "UseEnteraQueue" to 1 in the server dap file. One is that the client may crash under some scenarios; the second is if the client is bounced because the server is busy and the EnteraQueue is full, there will be some consistent memory leaking.

Fix:
The reaon that the client sometimes crashes is because at one point, the runtime sometimes tries to initialize one un_malloced memory. Changes are made in odesub.c. The other reason that that server leaks memory is that in the runtime, if a client is being terminated for any reason ( such as server is busy and the EnteraQueue is full), some extra memory needs to be freed. This memory is actually allocated by the DCE runtime. Changes are made in svrstb.c

This patch includes one updated file on Aix 4.1

Entera 3.2 patch release 43: Aix 4.1

Bug Description:
Using the Entera 3.2 Service pack of tcp on Aix 4.1 machine, customers find a bug that occurs when shutting down a DEDICATED ifx_start7. On disconnection you get the following error --:
"find_dbproc: connection to db failed <-1803>"

Fix:
The reason is when users terminate "ifx_server7" by typing CTRL-C, the server tries to disconnect itself from the databases. It is not good for the dedicated master server, because it never connects to the databases. (It forks a child server on receiving a new rpc call from the client. And only the child server connects to the database). That is why this error message show up, since it can not find the connections. It is fixed by check if it is a master server or not first.

This patches includes all one updated file on Aix 4.1

  1. "ifx_start7"

Borland Corporation, 8/11/98
Entera 3.2 patch release 42 : Aix 4.1

Bug Description:
Using the Entera 3.2 Service Pack of DCE on Aix 4.1 machine, if a customer runs the fx server by setting "UseEnteraQueue = 1", there will have some memory leak. It was the problem in the static library "functions.o". And it is fixed in this patch.

NOTICE
After installing this patch, you need to rebuild the server since it is a static library. Otherwise, it will not work.

  1. lib/functions.o

Entera 3.2sp patch 37 ( DCE )

Platform: Aix 4.1

Patch details:
Signals SIGUSR1 and SIGUSR2 will now be handled within the Entera runtime. These signals will now generate a message in the log file indicating the signal id ( 30 or 31 ) received , and will no longer kill the servers. Using the runtime library supplied, for creating new DCE servers will result in SIGUSR1 and SIGUSR2 to be handled automatically by the servers and a 'Caught Signal ...' message in the log file to be generated. This behavior is by design and cannot be overridden.

This patch also incorporates a previous fix, which will result in the following behavior:

Running the '<server -i>' command will no longer prompt for the DCE principal name if the DAP file exists. In these cases, the principal name will be taken from the PrincipalName attribute in the DAP file.

Entera 3.2 patch release 35 : Solaris 2.5

This is a mega patch of several bugs that have been fixed previously.

Bug Description:

  1. In the link list example, obigen generates wrong client stub : caused client to dump core.
  2. "ode_cln_wait_for_binding" call causes client to crash.
  3. VB confarray of size 0 stub generation problem.

  5. Bug with nested structures.

  8. backends/libdceswc50.so
  9. backends/libdcevbc30.so
  10. backends/libdcevbc40.so
Known Problems:
This patch is incompatible with the version of libdce.so shipped with the Entera 3.2GA release. The libdce.so file is under <INSTALLDIR>/cmn/bin where INSTALLDIR is the base of your Entera install. This will only be an issue if <INSTALLDIR>/cmn/bin is part of your LD_LIBRARY_PATH setting (which is only needed if using Appminder).

This particular file is only used when running TCP servers under Appminder.

To work around this problem:

  1. Remove <INSTALLDIR>/cmn/bin from your LD_LIBRARY_PATH setting

    OR

  2. Put /usr/lib in front of your LD_LIBRARY_PATH to ensure that libdce.so gets picked up from your DCE installation.
