I'm running LMS 3.1 on Solaris 9 on a Sunfire 480. My client PC is using IE 6.0.2900.2180 with jre 1.6.0_05 which was down loaded when initially entering Topology services in Campus. I consistently get the Campus Manager Error "Cannot connect to ANI server" with Probable Cause "Unknown Error". ANIServer is running and restarting Campus Manager does not resolve the issue. I tried changing nameserver.usedns to false, as well as reinitdb.pl -restore but nothing seems to work. There is only one interface on the system, so gatekeeper.ior does not exist and multi-homing is not an issue. The error occurs during Applet initialization. When responding (clicking OK) to the error message, the dialog box closes but the Topology Services Applet windows remains open for a prolonged period in state "Initializing Applet" - up to several minutes before closing on its own. This happens when using a web connection to the Solaris or Windows-based CiscoWorks servers. If using a remote desktop to Windows-based CW servers and running CW from that session, Topology services can be run with no problems. It appears to be a client-side java or browser security issue or blocked ports. Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this further?
Thanks for any help.
