Is there a way to increase the number of connections accepted by the evaluation edition of ASA?
I am running ASA 9.0.2 on SUSE Linux 10 ES and developed a simple application which creates DB connections using JDBC. After 10 (yes, ten) connections, subsequent connections return SQLException: LZ00L: Login Failed.
In fact, I discovered some deeper causes of the problem.
1. I started the ASA server the WRONG way
I took for good the PDF file which came with the server and there the examples used 'dbeng9 -n host ...'
Inspiring from Windows version, I came across 'dbsrv9 -n host ...' and now the issue no longer appears
2. There was an issue with my JDBC application. At some point, while the transaction was not yet committed, it attempted to get a new connection in the same thread. At this point, JDBC driver (jConnect) reported the Login Failed error (the credentials were OK, BTW). Once I reused the connection for that thread, everything went OK with both dbeng9 and dbsrv9.
I assume the open transaction forbids the creation of new connections in the
same thread? Am I right?
