Couldn't connect to ANI server (BUT it's running)


while I try to run any component(path analysis,topology services or user tracking) in Campus Manager, it says that

"cannot connect to ANI server"

"ANI server is down"

" verify that ANI server is running and restart Path analysis"

I did analyze ANI server(Server Conf --> Diagnostic) .

the output is :

Running on host = ciscoworks2000/

State = Idle

Total Memory = 16191480

Free Memory = 6679592


Furthermore,I did check process status.and output is:

ANIServer Running but busy flag set.

In the documents related to RME,it says that "busy flag set" is not a problem.

BUT I couldn't connect to ANI server.

Same problem occured in ACLmanager Server.

It says "Running but busy flag set" but ACLmanager utilities couldn't connect to ACLmServer.

What maybe the problem? regards...

Re: Couldn't connect to ANI server (BUT it's running)

We were having the same problem too. We are running CW2K on W2K SP2 with all the latest patches. I went through the doc recommended but it didn't work. I tried re-applying the cd-one patch. No luck. Finally, for grins I tried connecting to the server using the IP instead of localhost. It Worked! I'm not sure why but I have topology services now. ????
