when I try to open the topology services I recieve the error Cannot connect to the ANIserver .... even when I am on the server itself .
I've found out it is due to my DNS problem, here is the scenario;
I installed the LMS on the server just before I joined it to the domain, after that I changed the name of the server and I joined it to the domain.
I was facing with the problem disabling to connect to ANIServer , so that I run the name change script on the server , even after that the problem
persists, as I click on CISCOWORKS shortcut on the desktop it is trying to open the wrong URL which is http://win-fktcprvq4r6:1741/ instead of the name which is the name of the server . attached is my pdshow and the snapshot of my desktop showing the wrong URL .
Solved! Go to Solution.
this looks ok, assuming lms-forsat is still the hostname of your server.
Could you please again describe the steps you do to access the page that throws the error and illustrate it with screenshots so that we can get a clear picture of the failure.
It is indeed a pitty that many errors in LMS just produce a broad list of possible issues, not related at all to the current situation.
It might as well just say 'fault'
Where in this case there is no issue whatsoever to say something like:
the hostname in shortcut will not be changed from the changehostname.pl script, you have to do it manually.
You have to create your own shortcut.
Right-click on the Desktop > new > shortcut
name: Cisco Prime (or CiscoWorks)
right-click on the new shortcut, open Properties
open the tab: Webdocument
change icon > Browse
point to: NMSROOT\MDC\etc\ciscoWorks.ico
with NMSROOT beining your installation path of LMS (e.g. C:\Progra~1\CSCOpx)
Even if I change that I dont think if my problem solved , cause my problem is; when I try to open topology services in Campus Manager, I got that error .
thank you .
sorry I didn't understood correctly;
on the LMS server, what does
I have changed the name of the server again and run the changehostname script, the problem sloved !!!
but when I run the two commands you have mentionedm,the results are nothing.
From another pc, can you connect to the aniserver where using the current name of the server?
If not goto java control panel, Advanced tab. Enable logging and show console.
Post the log from the console here.
On the server itself, can you connect to the aniserver where using the current name of the server?
In IE create a bookmark, delete the ciscoworks icon from the desktop, drag the ciscoworks from your favourites to the desktop
As I just replyed to Martin the problem solved but I dont know why should I have to change the name again !!
but to answer you I have to say that the problem was either on client and the server itself
thank you all guys ;-)
For now it doesn't work because the servername is main-cs-1 not forsat
I think if you create a hosts file entry on your pc with the IP of forsat and the name main-cs-1 the connection should be possible.
Session id is alpha-numeric, Exception:For input string: "515A559F12E0E53BD43D386F47BFB88B"
org.omg.CORBA.TRANSIENT: Retries exceeded, couldn't reconnect to main-cs-1:42342
As I mentioned earlier I have changed the name of the server and I ran the
changehostname script, on that . I wonder if there is a way to change that name too and not to relate the IP with the previous hostname.
thank you very much
I have to say that I don't understand that the server is looking for its old name after you run the changehostname script......
Could it be some processes remained running after you did a net stop crmdmgtd? Make sure all lms services are on manual startup except crmdmgtd, syslog, tftp and RCP service.
You may want to put the crmdmgtd to manual as well and reboot the server to make sure no files are looked when you run the changehostname script.
