findItemsAdvanced - Error 103

I'm getting a lot of Error 103 's when calling findItemsAdvanced yesterday and today (moreso today): "We were unable to run the search you entered. Please try again in a few minutes." In fact, I don't think I've ever gotten that error before, until Tuesday-ish.

Still checking on calling patterns on my end, but I don't think much has changed in my coding/calling environment regarding fIA in months, even 1-2 years for much of my code.

Anyone else seeing this increased error rate? I may patch my code to re-call immediately for this error, but I'm still assessing the situation.

Thanks,

The last one I got was May 1 at about 4:30 pm Eastern time. Looks like maybe it's fixed.

 

Now if they could do something about all those "Search Driver Exception" errors that I still get.....

I'm suddenly seeing these fIA Error 103's disappear today. Maybe they've patched things up... Cool.

Hi,

      Do you still see this problem?  If you still see this error please give a sample request and response so that we can investigate on this. 

 

 

Regards,

Seeing the same here.

 

In addition, 103 is returning ErrorCategory=Request.  It should be "System"

Yep, I've been getting that error message. A few hundred times in the past couple of days. It started around 6pm on Tuesday (around 3pm Pacific time).

 

It happens on all different sites, with the same fIA calls I've had working forever. The request being sent to eBay is perfectly normal -- nothing weird being injected somehow by bad bots or anything.

 

When I check whatever page request generated the error, it'll generally work, so I know the calls themselves are fine.
