Broker issue in MWS

Hi All,

Some of our Broker Servers are acting strange in our PROD instance.When we try to connect to the Broker server through MWS, we are getting the below error msg.

I have added the Broker Server in MWS with out any issues, then when i try to click on for the Brokers in Broker server, we are getting the below error msg.

Suspected there could be a problem with the MWS session and restarted the MWS, but still it dint brought any luck.

Restarting Broker server may resolve the issue, but just want to know the reason behind this error.

The Broker server is up and running fine…We dint find any issues with the broker server and the brokers.Transaction flow is quite good.

Please provide ur valuable thoughts and inputs on this and the resolution.

Err Msg:-
Failed to evaluate binding expression: “#{ServerInformationDefaultviewView.description}”

Error: Cannot get Broker server information.
Detailed error from MWS:- Error: Cannot get a valid connection to the Broker Server “prdwms01:16849”.

According to my knowledge,

We can create number of brokers in MWS. but if we want to use any one broker from those, than we have to configure in IS-Administration by using broker name.
Broker manager is deprecated in MWS. but broker configuration is still in IS-Administration.
in MWS
Broker #1 localhost 12 Default
Broker #2 localhost 0 XXX[which is not configured to IS]

so open IS Administration

  1. Open Settings
  2. Messaging
    3.Broker Settings
  3. Edit Broker Settings
    4.a. Broker Name: Broker #2
  4. Save Changes
    6.Restart your IS


This is not the problem with the broker which is not configured etc…The configuration is pretty good…I can able to log in to the respective Broker server…remember Broker server…nt broker…:slight_smile:

Once i log in to the Broker Server, we have multiple Brokers in the broker server, if i want to view one of the broker inside the BS, we are getting the mentioned error.

Ofcourse if i want to view the clients/Doc types/Client groups i need to select the respective broker…if i select any of the broker, then that error occurs…

And more over u cant configure broker from the IS Administration,you can only configure Broker Server,nt broker…Lot of difference is there my friend…:-

u can do the broker configurations/creation either from MWS or Broker Administration or from the Unix level…
