2582112 - ERROR => NiBufIConnect: non-buffered connect pending after <timeout >ms


In scenarios like:

  • An SAP ABAP system acting as client of the connection
  • An SAP Webdispatcher trying to connect to a backend system

   the following error message appears in the dev_icm or dev_webdisp trace files:

   [Thr <nr>] NiIConnect: state of hdl <nr> NI_CONN_WAIT
   [Thr <nr>] *** ERROR => NiBufIConnect: non-buffered connect pending after 5000ms (hdl <IP address>:<port nr>) [nibuf.cpp    4524]
   [Thr <nr>] NiICloseHandle: called for hdl <nr> while waiting for connection
   [Thr <nr>] NiICloseHandle: shutdown and close hdl <nr>/sock <nr>
   [Thr <nr>] IcmIConnConnect: Connect to host: <destination hostname>:<port nr>, NIECONN_REFUSED(-10)
   [Thr <nr>] *** WARNING => Connect to <destination hostname>:<port nr> failed: NIECONN_REFUSED(-10) {00080aa9} [icxxconn.c 2356]

  This error message usually means that the client host (ICM or Web Dispatcher) requests to the Operating System a connection with the remote host and cannot receive the confirmation from OS level.
