Hello,

this is a ZFD server currently running ZFD6.5.2 and it's almost sole used to do
DLU for the XP workstations.

I just recognized after a reboot (HW-RAID disk replacement), that the invservice
does not come up as it should:

--------------- at the console ---------------------
Starting the Upgrade service.
The database has already been set to the Ready state.
The Upgrade service is trying to free the resources.
Stopping the upgrade service.
Starting STRConverter service
Starting Selector Service
Starting Storer Service
Obtaining dbdir from service object: NW03VOL1:\ZENworks\Inv\ScanDir\DbDir
Trying to connect to the database -> MW_DBA
jdbc:sybase:Tds:nw03goe.goepfert.intern:2638?Servi ceName=mgmtdb&JCONNECT_VERSION
=4
Inventory Sync Service started
Successfully connected to the database
Storer: Database is initialized.
Connection refused

???
database *IS* initialized, then later connection refused?
confused!
???

------------------------------------------

the object SERVERNAME_invDatabase seems to be clean:

server-DN is ok
Server-IP is ok
database username: MW_DBA
pwd: retyped "novell" several times
read only: MW_READER
pwd: same
write only: MW_UPDATER
pwd same.



Document ID: 3000316 seems not to be applicable here, it's the only one with
"ZFD" and that connect error I can find. (that is *NOT* an TID, right?)


BTW: its painfull, that the old http://support.novell.com/search/kb_index.jsp was
shut down finally...


Any suggestions?
