Environment

Products:

Novell eDirectory 8.7.3.6 for All Platforms
Novell eDirectory 8.7.3.7 for All Platforms
Novell eDirectory 8.7.3.8 for All Platforms
Novell iManager 2.5
Novell iManager 2.6

Situation

Novell iManager 2.5 or Novell iManager 2.6 is used to authenticate to Novell eDirectory 8.7.3.6 and above servers on a different host machine and new TCP connections arecreated between the 2 servers on every successful  authentication request. One or more TCP connections are, however, not cleared when the logged in user logs out.
Problem with connections increasing is not reproducible when Novell iManager 2.5 or Novell iManager 2.6 is used to authenticate to Novell eDirectory 8.8 servers.

Resolution

This is a bug with the way Novell iManager 2.5 and Novell iManager 2.6 internally handle connections to Novell eDirectory 8.7.3.6 and above servers. The isssue will be addressed in Novell iManager 2.5 Maintenance Update 4 and is addressed in  latest support pack release of Novell iManager 2.6.
 
Workaround:
 
Restarting Tomcat should also clear the builtup connections.
