Error Communicating with DCR Server

Hello,

While trying to edit device credentials, I got this error from DCR:

Error in communicating with DCR  Server.
DCR Server may be down. Please start the DCR Server and then refresh  the page.

But when I checked the DCRServer process status from Process Status Report and the Process List, it's Running normally.

What could be the problem? The CiscoWorks server runs 3.0.1 (December 2007 Update). Attached are pdshow command output, dcr and DCRServer logs

Can you please post what DFM version this server is running?

The DFM version is 3.0.5

Re: Error Communicating with DCR Server

This behavior points to a problem seen in older versions of DFM, but it should be fixed on DFM 3.0.5.  Do you see this error message on any other screens in LMS or only when trying to edit credentials in CS? Does the problem always return even if you restart server?

Enable debug mode for Device and Credentials Repository under CS > Server > Admin > CS Log Configurations.  Reproduce error and post a new set of DCRServer.log, dcr.log, dcrclient.log and pdshow.
