3207741 - Duplicate dpagent services cause disconnection and session conflicts


Various errors can be caused by a duplicate dpagent service. The duplicate instances of the service both try to communicate with HANA and interrupt each other, causing a mostly unusable state of the dpagent.

  • "invalid session ID"
  • "Adapter not active"
  • Agent is frequently disconnecting and reconnecting to HANA
  • Virtual table queries are interrupted in the middle of execution

Running processes on the agent machine include multiple instances of the dpagent and varying services:

ps -ef | grep -i dpagent
