When launching topology services, I encountered this error
We were able to resolve this before by creating an entry for Ciscoworks(ip add and hostname) on the HOSTS file of the workstation.
But recently, I encountered the same error again on a newly installed LMS 3.2. Adding an entry for ciscoworks in the hosts file couldnt resolve the error.
Recommended java is already installed. ANIserver is ok.
What is the best solution for this?
OS is Windows 2008 Enterprise with sp1. LMS 3.2 is installed on VMWare Esxi4.0
This is a new installation.The screen shot that I attached was from another customer before,and it was resolved when I created an entry in the hosts file of the laptop we were using. But for this new customer, I encountered the same error seen on the screen shot even after doing the same solution.
So you are 100% sure that NMS-CISCO-GLOBAL is now resolvable from the PC from which you try to connect?
Try a telnet to NMS-CISCO-GLOBAL on port :42342 to check if there is something blocking the connection
Also try to avoid going via a proxy
Sorry for the confusion. Please do not mind other details of the screen shot that I attached. I was just pointing out that I got the same error on a newly installed LMS 3.2 on a different customer. Any solutions in mind to resolve this kind of error?
Check on the server if something is listening on port 42342 using netstat -a | find "42342"
If this shows the port as listening then all should be fine on the server, ANI server is running as it should.
Try a telnet to the ciscoworks server on port :42342 to check if there is something blocking the connection.
Ok I will try this tomorrow. Actually today, I was able to launch topology services on the server.. but on a client (laptop), It doesnt work.
