Issue.FIM Plugin needs the aserver connectivity fixed to allow pool refresh like the AxM agents do.

With firewalls or aserver .socket.timout set (acting like a firewall) The torn down connections will never be reset if the user doesn't configure the retry equal to the number of aservers.

The connections would never be torn down if pool refresh could be configured like the agent is with pool refresh pinging the connections in a configurable amount of time

ResolutionReleased in FIM 4.2 SP1  several new parameters were added to CTConnection plugin control connections to AxM better.  Especially when firewalls are concerned.

These parameters were added.
PoolRefreshTime - The Pool Interval time in minutes the Runtime API will attempt to refresh the pool,
RefreshPersistTime - The minimum amount of time in seconds the Runtime API will wait before attempting one more refresh when all connections are invalid,
MinRefreshInterval - The minimum amount of time in seconds that has to pass after the last pool refresh before the Runtime API will allow a new attempt

NotesThe following are the default values set for the parameters in the CTConnection plugin.


PoolRefreshTime – 60 Seconds

RefreshPersistTime – 30 Seconds

MinRefreshInterval- 5 Seconds


This default setting can be viewed and modified in the <FIM_INSALL location>\ rsa-fim-config\plugins\CTConnection\plugin.xml.
