This article applies to BoKS Manager 6.7.0, 6.7.1 and 7.0.0.

Description

The BoKS admin server boks_bccasd intermittently fails to read requests from the Web Services Interface (WSI).
In most cases the request will succeed after WSI retries, but in severe cases it might cause requests to fail completely. There is also an issue with requests containing "..." in the data, causing boks_bccasd to stop reading prematurely.

Resolution / Workaround

To resolve this issue, apply hotfix HFBM-0155 (BoKS 6.7) or HFBM-0156 (BoKS 7.0), available for download from the HelpSystems Community Portal.

This hotfix corrects two issues in the read event loop in boks_bccasd: It should return to the event loop when reading partial requests from the client instead of attempting to read a continuation which might not yet be available, and it should only detect the yaml end-of-document marker "..." after a newline.
