t_rcvconnect error

Message text

nconnect: t_rcvconnect, %s

NoteThis error may be caused by a hardware problem.


This error occurs when an Adaptive Server using a TLI-based interface tries to establish a client connection and an operating system error message is returned. This can happen when Adaptive Server tries to execute an RPC on a server that is not running (Adaptive Server, Open Server, or Backup Server).

When this error occurs, the connection is not established and the message is written to the error log. (%s) is the text of the operating system error that caused the failure.

This is not a serious error unless it occurs frequently.


Resolve the problem that caused the operating system error contained in the Adaptive Server error message. You may need assistance from an operating system or network administrator. Refer to the operating system man pages for information about the t_rcvconnect() system call.

Check the Adaptive Server error log. If other errors exist, refer to the write-ups in this manual for information about recovering from them.

If, after resolving the operating system problem and the problems found in the error log, you still get the message “nconnect: t_rcvconnect, %s,” call Sybase Technical Support.

Before calling Sybase Technical Support, have the information available that is listed in “Reporting errors”, including the contents of the interfaces file and the output of sp_helpserver and sp_configure.
