9/124 error after every restart of Fileshare

9/124 error after every restart of Fileshare


After each daily restart of Fileshare (necessary for daily batch jobs in this particular instsance), the very first transaction performed after the restart in the webservice receives a 9/124 error.

For example, looking up a customer ID could fail but all subsequent times (looking up a customer ID agina) works fine till the next restart.


Since the first transaction is the issue here, one needs to make sure that the client will attempt to reconnect. The delay between each attempt will not matter. By default the delay will be 0 milliseconds.

By adding the following in the configuration settings in fhredir.cfg of Fileshare:

/ra 1

Will solve that 9/124 error.

With this setting, the client will attempt 1 millisecond, one time immediately after the first 'failed' attempt.
