What could cause the error
INTERNAL: bad request type
when invoking srvrmgr
(after just deploying a new .srf)?
For the benefit of other readers: Change request
is logged to have the error
INTERNAL: bad request type
documented and its root causes explained.
Currently, there is no further information available.
The customer confirmed that a new compilation of the .srf made the error go away, so it seems caused by a corrupt .srf.
srvrmgr itself does NOT use the .srf, but if object managers fail to start because of a corrupt .srf, this will affect srvrmgr as well.BUG:12-IZ0GW2 - DOCUMENTATION REQUEST FOR ADM-01011: INTERNAL: BAD REQUEST TYPE

We are using a third party hardware load balancer (Radware). We are getting repeated error in
our SCBroker log:

Please advise. Thanks. I will attach some files for ref.
Thank you for your Service Request update.
I have done further research on the error message you are encountering in the SCBroker log file "SBL-SCB-00013: Client disconnected before connection could be processed" and I found that this is only an informational message and there is no reason to worry about it. You have also mentioned that the disk problem was fixed, the load balancer is round-robin load balance correctly and I assume that currently your Siebel environment is working properly.
Please let me know your current status, whether this problem needs further attention, if you have further questions, etc. and if not, if I may now conclude the work on this Service Request.
Kind regards from

Thanks for the info. Is there a way to suppress these errors? The log files are filling up very fast and taking up lot of space. Also, it will be difficult to wade thru these ignorable errors to find the revelant errors if there are any.
Regarding the error messages you are encountering in the SCBroker log file "SBL-SCB-00013: Client disconnected before connection could be processed", I have logged the Change Request 12-S8XTCV (SCBroker errors in the log file: SBL-SCB-00013) in order to have these errors appearing only when the log level is set to 4 or 5 for the SCBroker component since a benign message should only appear under high event logging.
I have associated this Service Request to the above-mentioned Product Defect. Please note that in general, when a product defect is logged, it is reviewed, prioritized, and then potentially fixed in a future release.
In order to manage the size of the log file of SCBroker component I would like to suggest you referring to the "FAQ 1939: How Can Users Manage the Size of the Siebel Log Files?” You will find there information on how you would be able to specify a max log size. When the log file reaches that size, the process closes the file and opens a new one. Using a script, you can open the closed file and “clean” it of these messages. That’s more of a workaround, but it helps keep the logs “clean”.
