Hi Cedric,

It sounds like you are adjusting the messages to have ! in the MSH:18 field. Unless I'm misunderstanding, that seems like a misinterpretation of the DefCharEncoding documentation, which I will include here:

Default Char Encoding

Normally the encoding found in MSH:18 is used, but an "!" at the start of the DefCharEncoding setting will forcibly use whatever encoding you specify.

Hope that helps.

Hi Elisha,

The general method for handling incoming too-long fields would be the validation setting, which can send a message to the bad message handler to be treated as needed:


Validating Fields

"Test that field sizes in the message conform to the schema."

In your case if you know what fields need to be truncated it should be really easy to use a DTL to truncate those fields.

Hope that helps!

Hey Murillo,

I'm not sure how the SOAP stuff you describe works into the standard Ensemble machinery, and understanding what globals/data are not being purged might be useful to provide further guidance. However, the purge you mention is intended for the activity monitor, and is not the main purge task which is just Ens.Util.Tasks.Purge. See the following docs:

Purging Production Data

Monitoring Activity Volume

Hi Laura,

I don't really have an answer but maybe you can include some pseudo-code or sample code for people to try to reproduce the behavior you're describing. I have an idea of what you're doing from your description but the specifics could be important.

I think the WRC should be able to help out with this - definitely seems like an odd issue worth investigating.

Hi Russell,

Can you share more of how you're trying to use %Net.SSH.Session and where exactly the error is coming up? Your version information may be useful as well.


I'm able to reproduce the behavior with emergency mode requiring you to enter the emergency mode user/pass to shut down. You are certainly welcome to reach out to the WRC to confirm if this is intended behavior, but I suspect that it is. I am wondering what the use case is here as emergency access mode is a special mode, intended for use "under certain dire circumstances, such as if there is severe damage to security configuration information or if no users with the %Admin_Manage:Use or %Admin_Security:Use privileges are available". In those situations you would be taking manual steps so uninteractive shut down would not be necessary.

Could you simply use a normal login and not emergency mode?
