Issue/Introduction

Following the upgrade of Univiewer WebConsole to 6.10.11 / 6.10.21 or 6.10.31, users encounter more and more often the following kind of Popup Errors when doing different Actions on Dollar Universe Nodes:

"UniverseProtocol - decodeHeader: invalid header [K"

See the example of Popup Errors:

 

After clicking on OK, two different behavior occur depending on the UVWC version:

  1. On UVWC 6.10.11 and UVWC 6.10.21: the users need to logout / login so that the Console continues to work without further errors
  2. On UVWC 6.10.31: users do not need to logout / login anymore, but it may take up to 4 minutes until the Console can be used again without other additional errors

Cause

The problem was caused by a User-Setting added on version 6.10.11 (DU_AS-2961)

User Preferences - General Settings - Connection Retention

Default UVMS Connection Retention Delay in seconds - set by default to 240

Resolution

Workaround on version UVWC 6.10.31 and inferior:

2. Ask ALL Univiewer Webconsole Users to modify the following User Preference in their UVC Webconsole on every laptop / workstation / Citrix server where they launch it:

Example of Connector used by Webconsole:

  <Connector port="8080" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
               connectionTimeout="60000"
               redirectPort="8443"
                maxPostSize="12582912"
                maxHeaderCount="5000"
                maxThreads="1000" />
