WF Server Not Answered

Post by kapoking » Mon May 30, 2011 8:20 pm


We are building a web application which utilizes the 5250 Bridge in Zend Server. We sometimes encounter the following error message when calling Submit() function of Zend_5250 API ( ... ge_api.htm)

"WF Server Not Answered"

The Time-Out value of 5250 Bridge is set to 0. "ReadTimeoutMicro = 0" in 5250 Bridge Configuration file (Brdg5250.ini)

Do you have any idea why it happen? Your help is greatly appreciated.

The error message indicates that the WEBFACING server is down. The WEBFACING server is part of TCP/IP application in IBMi which needs to be started after system IPL. You could add the WEBFACING server start command STRTCPSVR SERVER(*WEBFACING) to ZENDSVR subsystem autostart job entries option. This way the WEBFACING server will start running when ZENDSVR subsystem is started.
