When i log in to Ciscoworks and try acessing administration. I get an error message 2 below.
"Can not connect to server: Exception in connectToAni()"
"Unable to load properties from server. Please try after sometime."
Kindly assist on what i nned to do to restorethe connection to my ANI database.
Solved! Go to Solution.
From the command line can you do a pdshow and see if the database is running ?
If you have restarted the server and you have a large network, you will have to wait up to half an hour before the Campus ANI database will respond to requests.
It may take a while for ANIServer to fully initialize. After about 10 minutes, if you still can't connect, post the ani.log.
There is a problem with EDS. Please post the EDS.log. Was the IP address or hostname changed on this server recently?
Does the file NMSROOT/www/classpath/com/cisco/nm/cmf/eds/loader/EDSClassLoader.class exist?
It looks like things were working fine for a while up until September 14. What happened on the 14th? Have you tried a reboot of the server since then?
I was trying to run the logrot script to resize my log file which was so big. I stopped the syslog service, deleted the syslog.log file and restarted the server. from then it hasn't worked.
Shutdown dmgtd, then post the output of "netstat -a -n -o -b". If that doesn't work, try "netstat -a -n -o". If that doesn't work, "netstat -a -n".
What is the syntax for the shutdown command?netstat -a -n -o -b is not giving any output
Attached is the output for netstat -a -n and netstat -a -n -o.
I have also seen in your previous discussions asking someone to check instances of the server's hostname in a dmgtd.conf file in the path /opt/CSCOpx/objects/dmgt, when i check on my server i only have F:\Program Files\CSCOpx\objects\dmgt\ready\jrm i don't have the dmgtd.conf file, could this be the cause of the problem.
Apparently before i shutdown dmgtd, i decided to open my topology and administration and it connected to the database very fast. I now can see all my devices.
From your previous discussions i saw something to do with DNS. I just restarted my DNS service which was actually deactivated.
Thank you very much.
I think that i have a maintenace problem, what material of best practices can you advice me to read or access so as to maintain the server properly.
Currently the server just runs and uses it for only configuration achieving. For example i would like to remove all the old unreachable devices and use other modules like the DFM.
Kindly advice and Thanks once again.
