Win2k Server with SP3
CD One 5th edition version 2.1
Every morning when I log into CW2k and try to run topology services under CM, it will lock up trying to connect to ANI server. This happens with all services provided by CM, although I only use topology services (I guess the problem happens when CM tries to query ANI server.) RME works fine in this situation, and when you check the processes under server configuration, everything seems to be up and running. I can fix the problem by either rebooting the server, or stop/start ANI under process management. After the problem is "fixed", it will work fine throughout the day (believe it or not). Next morning everything starts all over again. In addition, any changes you make to the CM topology, such as rearranging the icons, will be lost once ANI is stop/start or rebooted.
I have tried clearing out the servlet directory, but that didn't do anything. This problem happens whether you are connecting with a web browser remotely, or locally on the server.
Short of reinstalling CM (or maybe even CW2k), I don't really have a solution for this problem. Anyone ever seen something like this?
