When trying to open SNA Server subdomains, SNA Server Manager may display a
error message prematurely. The SNAOLE error message pops up stating that the domain could not be found but then the domain is opened normally.
When trying to find the SNA Server configuration file path, a call is made to the SNA Server DMOD (SNADMOD.DLL). If the DMOD is locked doing an Open connection which times out, the call does not return for a while. This call has a timeout of 10 seconds, after which the "Failed to Open Domain" message was displayed.
An update has been made that increases the timeout for the call to find the SNA Server configuration file path to 60 seconds to reduce the likelihood of this problem occurring. During this 60 seconds, SNA Server Manager is unable to respond to user input.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft SNA Server, versions 3.0 and 3.0 SP1. This problem was corrected in the latest SNA Server version 3.0 U.S. Service Pack.
