Need help in resolving IP Address caching issue in webMethods 7.1.3 version.
Environment - webMethods 7.1.3
Integration Type - webService/SOAP URL/HTTP Call
Background: Downstream application runs either on PROD server and Recovery Server.
Our application (webMethods) is invoking downstream application Virtual IP URL (HTTP Call). Request will be directed to active server (PROD or Recovery). Redirecting is taken care by external LoadBalancer.
Issue: Whenever downstream application switches from PROD Server to Recover Server and vice versa, webMethods is getting SOCKETEXCEPTION error. However, connectivity works fine after restarting webMethods server.
Additional Information: CacheResults property at FlowService level has been set to FALSE.
Before restarting the webMethods server, Able to ping the downstream application servers IPAddress/port from webMethods UNIX box.
Before restarting the webMethods server, Able to telnet the URL from webMethods UNIX box.
Please let me know the possible solution if anyone has come across the similar situation.
