Re: Error in communicating with DCA Server in LMS 2.5.1

check the DCRServer status with

pdshow DCRServer

what is the status? if it is down, try to restart it with

pdexec DCRServer

was the hostname of the server changed?

try to recreate the server certificate:

Server > Security > Single-Server Management > Certificate Setup

and restart the all daemons (net stop..)

is there any hint in dcr.log?

if this does not help, you should enable debug for dcr

If the process is Never started, then one of its dependencies failed to properly initialize. DCRServer depends on TomcatMonitor, CmfDbMonitor, and EssMonitor. What are the states of those processes?

Re: Error in communicating with DCA Server in LMS 2.5.1

CmfDbMonitor and EssMonitor are in running normally state but TomcatMonitor's state is : administrator has shut down this server. when I try to start it, it remains on this same state .help please!

Check your service startup parameters for the CiscoWorks services in the Service Control Panel. Please provide the complete list and their parameter.

No, I want the startup parameter (i.e. Manual, Automatic).

New Member

Re: Error in communicating with DCA Server in LMS 2.5.1

the startup parameter is automatic for all service except FHDbEngine and INVDbEngine their startup parameter is manual

Cisco Employee

Re: Error in communicating with DCA Server in LMS 2.5.1

This is your problem. All services EXCEPT CiscoWorks Daemon Management, the CWCS services, and the IPM services MUST be set to Manual startup.

Here is a list of which services MUST be manual:

http://forum.cisco.com/eforum/servlet/NetProf?page=netprof&forum=Network%20Infrastructure&topic=Network%20Management&CommCmd=MB%3Fcmd%3Dpass_through%26location%3Doutline%40%5E1%40%40.1ddc28c1/10#selected_message

After changing these parameters, reboot your server.

Re: Error in communicating with DCA Server in LMS 2.5.1

I've changed these parameters but problems persist.

I think that the problem is due to the fact that I left the domain where it was at the time of the installation of LMS. Indeed I cannot reach any more the server by its name which is serverlms but by its address IP only.

http://serverlms:1741 don't work

http://192.168.10.10:1741 work for example but with error to DCA server

Cisco Employee

Re: Error in communicating with DCA Server in LMS 2.5.1

If the hostname of the server has changed since you installed LMS, you will need to follow the 10-step procedure at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/rtrmgmt/cw2000/cw2000_d/cs303/usrguide/diagnos.htm#wp1078582 to update the hostname within LMS.
