Failed communication with NSM engine

I've downloaded NSM 2.0 and have received a 30-day trial license and
installed it on a test Active Directory server. When I login to NSAdmin, I
get..."Attempt to communicate with the NSM engine failed." When I
manually try to start the service, it reports back that it started and
stopped and that this may occur if the service has nothing to do.
  • Brett,

    Is the NSMEngine service not starting up or the NSMSentinel service?

  • I am having the same problem on a NW 6.5 sp5a server, did you have any luck
    resolving the provlem on your end?

  • Brett,

    When you requested your LICENSE.DAT did you put in the Forest Root Domain
    name? There is a tool on the license request page that will help you find
    out what your Forest Root Domain name is...if you need it.

    Hope this helps,

  • Yes. When I applied for the trial license, I put "server1.test.org" in
    the field for test root domain when I should have only put "test.org". It
    only needed my root domain.

    Hope that helps you.
