Siebel Runtime Settings
Siebel Runtime Settings
Some of the Common Errors in Siebel Protocol:

Back or Refresh Error:

We get error, when we pass the wrong TimeStamp or SWEC Count. For every request, the SWEC count will increase, if we pass the wrong SWEC, it will fail by throwing “Back or Refresh Error”.

Server Busy Error:

The following error is one of the common error which we get frequently during scripting and execution.

"The server you are trying to access is either busy or experiencing difficulties. Please close the Web browser, open a new browser window, and try logging in again.[01:55:21] "

The main cause for this the sessions might be less, we should ask for Siebel administrator to increase the sessions in the server.

The following commands will be useful to increase the sessions in the server:

srvrmgr:dev_srv1> CHANGE PARAM MAXMTsERVERS=4 FOR COMP eautoObjMgr_DB
Command completed successfully.

srvrmgr:dev_srv1> CHANGE PARAM MAXTASKS=400 FOR COMP eautoObjMgr_DB
Command completed successfully.
