"Unexpect output buffer value" error when fetching user list using IBConsole

By: Quinn Wildman

Abstract: A security database with many user will generate this error

Q. When I select Server | User Security I get the error "Unexpect output buffer value". What causes this and what can I do to about it?

A. This error occurs when you have many users in your security database. The number of users that will cause this error varies depends on much non-required information (such first and last name) you have in your security database. However, 1000 users is around when it occurs to most users.

If this error occurs you must either use gsec to administer your users, or write your own application which uses the services API.
