otl_connect.rlogon API call hangs

I am trying to connect to the oracle 11g database using the OTL 4.0 libraries in red hat Linux platform.

After passing the userid/passwd@db to the rlogon method,  the otl_connect.rlogon call stucks and never returns. So, the application hangs. The issue is looks like some system library related issue.

Thanks for your help,

Are you calling 'set_connection_mode()' and 'set_program_name()' prior to 'rlogon()'? Also, what happens when you use 'set_timeout()' with an appropriate value?

JKR, Thanks for your help.

I am calling the below methods:

otl_connect objConn;
otl_connect::otl_initialize();
objConn.rlogon(userid/passwd@db);

In some Linux boxes, the above code hangs. But in  other system it works. So I think this issue may be due to the environmental (lib version etc) issue.

I will try your suggestions.

The environment could well be an issue... so maybe the timeout can help...

Thanks jkr,

When I check the binary dependency (LDD), it looks fine. Since the binary was working in all other systems, I don't prefer to  change the existing the code.

When I use strace, the below output is keep logging.

times(NULL)                             = -838950935
times(NULL)                             = -838950935
times(NULL)                             = -838950935
times(NULL)                             = -838950935
times(NULL)                             = -838950935
times(NULL)                             = -838950935

I am wondering how can I find the root cause of this issue.

Not familiar with the OTL 4 libraries but that error appears to be a known bug in the Oracle 10g client.

Thanks slightwv.

I think your post will make sense to my problem. I can try updating my build machine with Oracle 11g client, rebuild the binaries and test it.
