SYMPTOMS

An RUI application that is written to capture all negative responses is only notified by the RUI libraries of the first -RSP generated at the host by a series of bad messages. SNA Server traces indicate that host negative responses for each "bad" message sent by the RUI application are received by SNA Server, but only the first negative response is passed to the RUI application.

CAUSE

To improve efficiency, SNA Server treats sequences of RQE chains received from an RUI application as if they were a single RQE chain. This causes SNA Server to pass only the first host negative response to the first RU as if it was a response to all "bad" RU's.

RESOLUTION

Snaservr.exe has been changed to allow the behavior of the SNA Server to be altered so that all -RSP messages that have the RQE bit set are passed to the RUI libraries if the following registry parameter is added:

   HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ 
      SnaServr\Parameters\ 

   DONTCOALESCE :  REG_SZ   [value is not important]
                

WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious, system-wide problems that may require you to reinstall Windows NT to correct them. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use this tool at your own risk.

Use the following steps to edit the registry:

  1. Run Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).
  2. From the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE subtree, go to the following key:

    \SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SnaServr\Parameters
                            
  3. On the Edit menu, click Add Value.
  4. Add the following values:

    Value Name: DONTCOALESCE
    Data Type: REG_SZ
    String: YES

  5. Click OK and then quit Registry Editor.


STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SNA Server for Windows NT version 2.11, 2.11 SP1, 2.11 SP2, 3.0, and 3.0 SP1.

This problem was corrected in the latest SNA Server version 3.0 U.S. Service Pack. For information on obtaining this Service Pack, query on the following word in the Microsoft Knowledge Base (without the spaces):
