Just wanted to let everyone know that, in my case the iusr_account was setup to deny logon during all hours.  after i granted access during all hours, it took a few minutes, but communications started.

I'm having this same problem.  When I go to a client, I only get a shield and the Troubleshooting tells me that the server is offline.

A little background, however.  I had to reinstall SEP, but it was to the same server, IP, DNS, etc.  I anticipated the clients to sync right back up.  I migrating and reinstalling to the client but all I get is a server offline.

This thing seems like a china mug; it's easily broken.

Any clues?

 

Thanks,
