Post the new pdshow output, ani.log, and ANIServer.log.  Repost the that you now have in NMSROOT/campus/etc/cwsi.

Thankyou the Ani Server is up but it is running with busy flagset.The other thing is the Discrepencies reports and violations report is not  showing anything.

The respone time of the server is ver y slow

Running with busy flag set is the normal state for ANIServer.  See my Daemon Cheat Sheet at for more on what the healthy daemon states should be.

The Discrepancies and BPD will only be populated after a Campus Data Collection is run.  It can take up to 30 minutes after a restart of Daemon Manager before the daemons calm down, and the system becomes responsive.

hi Joseph,

recently I have faced the same issue and after changing the properties file ANI server started but now i am getting the error "There may be possible ACS config mismatch " where as i have not changed the ACS settings. Could u pls help me out .

Hey, Arun.  Please start a new for your issue.  With ACS integration, you need to make sure all of the ACS side settings are good.  While you may not have changed anything within LMS, the ACS side may have changed.  For example, an ACS admin may have deleted some of the LMS components in ACS, or ACS may have been upgraded to an unsupported version (e.g., 5.x).
