2.2.5 SVR_RESP

The server responds to all client requests with an SVR_RESP. There is a slight variation in the message format for a response to a CLNT_UCAST_DAC (section 2.2.4) request, as described in section 2.2.6.

SVR_RESP

RESP_SIZE

RESP_DATA (variable)

...

SVR_RESP (1 byte): A single byte whose value MUST be 0x05.

RESP_SIZE (2 bytes): This unsigned integer specifies the length, in bytes, of subsequent response data RESP_DATA.

RESP_DATA (variable): A variable-length MBCS string that does not need to be byte-aligned. The maximum size of RESP_DATA MUST be 1,024 bytes if the server is responding to a CLNT_UCAST_INST (section 2.2.3) request. If the server is responding to a CLNT_BCAST_EX (section 2.2.1) or a CLNT_UCAST_EX (section 2.2.2) request, the maximum size of RESP_DATA MUST be 65,535 bytes.

Note

  • The content of the RESP_DATA string corresponds to the type of request received. For example, a CLNT_UCAST_EX request is answered with a CLNT_UCAST_EX response string. The formal syntax of the message is provided in Augmented Backus-Naur Form (ABNF), as specified in [RFC4234].

  • All responses to client requests contain information about one or more of the following transports:

     RESP_DATA = CLNT_BCAST_EX_RESPONSE / CLNT_UCAST_EX_RESPONSE / CLNT_UCAST_INST_RESPONSE
                
     CLNT_BCAST_EX_RESPONSE = CLNT_UCAST_EX_RESPONSE
                
     CLNT_UCAST_EX_RESPONSE = *[CLNT_UCAST_INST_RESPONSE]
                
     CLNT_UCAST_INST_RESPONSE = "ServerName" SEMICOLON SERVERNAME SEMICOLON 
     "InstanceName" SEMICOLON INSTANCENAME SEMICOLON "IsClustered"  
     SEMICOLON YES_OR_NO SEMICOLON "Version" SEMICOLON VERSION_STRING  
     [NP_INFO] [TCP_INFO] [VIA_INFO] [RPC_INFO] [SPX_INFO] [ADSP_INFO]
