Unable to register CCS Agent to CCS Manager

Created: 01 Sep 2013 | 6 comments


I am deploying the CCS Suite in a test environment.
My CCS Application Server and Manager are installed on the same host on running Windows Server 2008 R2.
I have an SQL Server 2008 installed on a separate host in Windows Server 2008 R2.
I have established both hosts under a same domain and both are logged on using user accounts of the domain.
I am trying to deploy an agent onto the Windows server 2008 r2 which the SQL Server 2008 is installed on. When I try to use the Agent Configuration utility on the Win 2008 r2 server where the SQL Server is installed on, I could not register connection with the Manager located on I entered the Manager name as and use port 5600.
When I click register, this error message came out:
"Error contacting manager. Error contacting manager on, port 5600. A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond".

I am also unable to register message-based registration as well.

Pls help me if possible. Thank you.

I can now register agents due to firewall configuration, but still cannot register message-based registration.

This is the registration log of the last unsuccessful agent registration for message-based registration.

I have already turned off the firewall on both machines.

Make sure your SPNs were setup correctly for the app and directory server. Also check to make sure that reverse lookup in DNS is working properly for the app/directory server

Also, is that Manager "enabled" for message-based data collection?

Settings > General > Standards

"Enable Message Based content"

Then, configure the Manager in Settings > System Topology

If you need more help... just post here. But that should get you going.
