Request for port of patch developed in DE249873 for release 10.3.0

Also refer to DE280364 Users start VSE locally to their laptops – specifying the connection details in a vmoptions file.

The important setting here is lisa.vseName=tcp://:/ They then wander off to a meeting with their laptop, and connect to the network in the meeting room (perhaps via WiFi).

Their IP address has now changed, but the VSE happily tries to re-connect to the registry.

Sensibly enough, the registry does not like this. The problem is, that the registry hates this so much that no-other VSE can connect thereafter, unless the user shuts down the now erroneous VSE, or the registry is restarted. Since the user is in a meeting is may not be possible to get the VSE shut down.

The server console also becomes unresponsive.
Environment:
DevTest 10.3.0
Resolution:
patch_DE359109_DE249873_10.3.0_GA.jar.

This patch can be applied to all installed DevTest components by placing it in the {{LISA_HOME}}/lib/patches directory.

Part of the patch addresses an issue specific to how the Registry handles the registration of a VSE, but the other parts of the patch address an issue that is common to all DevTest components.

Please restart all components after this patch has been applied.

Refer to patch_DE359109_DE249873_10.3.0_GA.jar when opening a support case.
