Background job fails during ASCS (standalone) failover in cluster

We have configured HP ServiceGuard Cluster solution in one of the LAB systems. Details are as below

HP SG version - 12.00.50 SGeSAP version - 06.00.80

Cluster nodes (SG cluster VM1) - ASCS (SG cluster VM2) – DB + ERS

App servers (not in cluster) (App Server ) (App Server )

Oracle version - 12c

Oracle client version - Client Shared Library 64-bit -

SAP version - NW 7.40 SP7

SAP kernel version - 742 Patch 429

When labusnzdtsg01 powered off, ASCS package fails over to another cluster node labusnzdtsg02, and ASCS starts on labusnzdtsg02. During this failover, we had below observation

1. Lock entries remain intact

2. Dialog sessions go on hold and reconnects when ASCS is available on labusnzdtsg02 3. Background job (SGEN job with parallelism on both App servers) got cancelled with below error

We do not expect failure of background job. Please let us know if this is the standard behaviour of the system. If not, please let us know solution for the same.

The background jobs should not fail during a fail-over of ASCS to the second node unless the AS where the job runs crashes. I would first check if this happens for all the jobs or just for the job triggered by the Tx SGEN.

Hi Reagan,

Thanks for reply.

You are correct, logically the job should not fail.

We have tested only SGEN and no other job.

However considering system behaviour, we expect other jobs to fail.

Also SAP replied that, whenever any job tries to connect to another App instance during failover of ASCS, the job is bound to get cancelled.

Any other thoughts?

Thanks & Regards,
