FIX: Error message when you use a BizTalk adapter to send messages on a computer that is running BizTalk Server: "Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port) is normally permitted"
This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
Consider the following scenario. You use one of the following Microsoft BizTalk Adapters to send messages:
Microsoft BizTalk Adapter for Oracle Database
Microsoft BizTalk Adapter for PeopleSoft Enterprise
Microsoft BizTalk Adapter for Siebel eBusiness Applications
You also configure two send ports that use different BizTalk host instances on a computer that is running Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006.
In this scenario, the adapter works only intermittently when you use the adapter to send messages. Additionally, the following error messages are logged in the Application log:
Error message 1
Runtime Error: Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port) is normally permitted.
Error message 2
Duplicate system defintion.
Note In this error message, "defintion" is a misspelling of "definition."
This problem occurs because each host instance has a separate RuntimeAgent.exe process. At startup, each RuntimeAgent.exe process tries to connect to the back-end system. Each RuntimeAgent.exe process may try to access the same TCP/IP port that another RuntimeAgent.exe process is already accessing.
