Error "Connection Failed" appears when attempting to query a UNIX target.

Error "Connection Failed" appears when querying a Solaris Sparc running in a cluster configuration.



Connection Failed


Note:  This reported error can be caused for multiple reasons - this is just one


An IP address is not bound to the agent.


On the UNIX target browse to the install directory of the agent and run the setup script with the "-ip" option.

  1. Change directory (CD) to /opt/BindView/bvcontrol.
  2. Run the command ./ -ip <ip to bind to>.
    • NOTE: The IP address used cannot be the cluster IP (the IP common to all machines within the cluster).
  3. The agent stops and restarts the bvcontrold daemon automatically.
  4. Run the query again
