Problem:

When stopping the SpectroSERVER it does not shutdown and stops at “Stopping CORBA Communication”

During shutdown of the SpectroSERVER, Spectrum requests a shutdown of all CORBA applications.  Occasionally the CORBA applications (OneClick, AlarmNotifier, etc...) may not reply and the SpectroSERVER is stuck in stopping.

 

Solution: 

Unfortunately if this happens you will have to kill the SpectroSERVER and load your previously known, good, saved SSdb.

However as of Spectrum 9.2.3 h12 and newer we have added an option in the .vnmrc that will Bypass CORBA shutdown.  To activate this option please enter the following line to the bottom of the .vnmrc and restart the SpectroSERVER.

bypass_corba_shutdown=true

 

Note: There are no harmful side effects to have CA CORBA applications shutdown without permission, however if you are a CORBA App developer you may want to verify that your CORBA apps can handle a shutdown without permission before implementing this solution.
