We're running a cluster of two 7845's which are supposed to be identical, yet when I try and apply the 4.2.3 Device Pack 60 Update for Version 4.2(3) that we are running I get this error on the subscriber:
Critical Error, Replication Initialization FAILED
Please made sure all nodes in the cluster are online (which they are!) and on the same version before upgrading to this patch.
It worked on the Publisher and Pub rebooted and they are both running the same version to the best of my knowledge.
The strange thing is that now after trying this update the publisher is now saying (when trying to use Service Activation from CM Serviceability on the primary publisher)
Status: Connection to the server could not be established
Network connectivity is ok and I can log in remotely the subscriber. Also seeing Error Not CDR Primary in the Subscriber App Event log if that's related at all? And the below which looks like more of an issue.
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Cisco Database Layer Monitor
Event Category: None
Event ID: 3
Time: 11:45:13 PM
AdditionalInfo: Could not open connection. ReturnCode= [0x00004814]
Any help/guidance would be appreciated.
I'm reasonably sure the default is for the local Administrator account password not to expire.
You certainly would not want them to be out of sync within a Windows CCM cluster...
