IssueThe MS Windows event viewer for RVM system displaying invalid argument for new config of Apache

10/17/2011 3:45:38 PM Apache Service - The Apache service named RSAValidationManager3.1VS reported the following error: >>> [Mon Oct 17 16:45:38 2011] [warn] (22)Invalid argument: No installed ConfigArgs for the service "RSAValidationManager3.1VS", using Apache defaults. .


Here is the reason for the attached RVM screen shots event viewer message:
Install anywhere 2010 is creating the registry keys and sub key values for Apache service installation. Install anywhere creates the Apache service "ConfigArgs" sub key type as REG_SZ as REG_MULTI_SZ type is not supported by Install Anywhere.

Whereas Apaches service is expecting the "ConfigArgs" sub key type as REG_MULTI_SZ type. Due to type mismatch Apache web server is writing the warning messages in the event viewer.

We already fixed this warning by correcting the registry during Apache service startup and this fix will be available in the next hot fix release.

Here is the analysis of Event viewer logs:
The below error messages are returned from RRM and RCM Apache servers:

Invalid method
WsalQueryString2NameValuePairs() failed with rc = [2]

Content sent from client is wrong type
Xparse has been called to handle a non xuda page - This error will come if filename is not invalid that is not xuda.

These errors are due to invalid HTTP client request and these request are may be from load balancers or from scanners.
