KB000125067 | CA GEN 8.6 REMOTE EJB EXECUTION WITH WILDFLY 10.1 & JBOSS EAP 7.1 AND "INITIAL FACTORY CLASS"

Although JBoss EAP uses the WildFly core it should be noted that WildFly 10.1 and JBoss EAP 7.1 use different values for "{Initial Factory Class}". WildFly 10.1 (WildFly Core 2.0.10.Final) still uses the older org.jboss.naming.remote.client.InitialContextFactory but the later JBoss EAP 7.1 (WildFly Core 3.0.10.Final-redhat-1) uses the new org.wildfly.naming.client.WildFlyInitialContextFactory. org.jboss.naming.remote.client.InitialContextFactory will still work short term with JBoss EAP 7.1 but is deprecated and server.log will show message "INFO  [org.wildfly.naming] (com.ca.gen.smrt.ServletSession) WFNAM00025: org.jboss.naming.remote.client.InitialContextFactory is deprecated; new applications should use org.wildfly.naming.client.WildFlyInitialContextFactory instead"

The ear file name value should not have the '.ear' extension included.

KB000124457 | CAN CA GEN HOST ENCYCLOPEDIA (HE) TABLE SPACES BE CONVERTED TO UNIVERSAL TABLE SPACES (UTS)

The Gen 8.x Host Encyclopedia has not been tested with UTS and it is therefore not supported. So although the change may not cause any negative impact if it is implemented then it would be at own risk.

KB000124386 | IS CA GEN HOST ENCYCLOPEDIA (HE) IMPACTED IF CHANGE DB2 RELATIVE BYTE ADDRESS (RBA) FROM 6 BYTES TO 10 BYTES

From v11 DB2 provides the ability to change the Relative Byte Address (RBA) from 6 bytes to 10 bytes. The CA Gen Host Encyclopedia has not been tested under DB2 running with an RBA of 10 bytes and it is therefore not supported. So although the change may not cause any negative impact if it is implemented then it would be at own risk.

KB000124103 | CA GEN COMMS BRIDGE SHOWS ~5 SECOND LATENCY ON INITIAL CLIENT CONNECTION VIA F5 LOAD BALANCER

Our Comms Bridge servers in our pre-production environment is experiencing a strange 4.5second latency issue but only occurs when the receiving application (ComProxyBridge) communicates to CommsBridge via our F5 load balancer. When ComProxyBridge talks directly to the CommsBridge node a response is almost instantaneous.u000au000aIn addition, the latency only appears to occur during the initial establishment of the connection to the CommsBridge node as subsequent connections (via the F5) appear to return as expected. Once the entire connection is dropped from ComsProxyBridge it takes another 4.5secs to establish to CommsBridge (via F5).
