error No host available, all connections are down

Hi,

Ive read the other threads regarding this same error message. We are currently in the process of migrating sap xmii 11.5 from a test server to a live server. The previous server had xmii run under the default website - the new install is to run under a new website on IIS. If i browse the folder illuminator from the default website (home directory C:\inetpub\wwwroot) the xmii menu page will appear. Doing the same from the new xmii website (home directory C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Illuminator) produces the error page "No host available, all connections are down". The security server is setup as http://<machine name>/LHSecurity and all install instructions were followed. The scripts virtual directory has been created and annonymous access allowed etc. etc.

Have read about creating a new server certificate and importing this into the j2sdk cacerts file, is this relevant as the suppossed entry does not exist on the test server which runs correctly ?

Have noticed under Security Services tab that the link to security Manager is missing when the security server is named http://<machine name>/LHSecurity - and on clicking System Security access is denied with the "No host available, all connections are down " error. Should i change the security server name to http://Localhost/LHSecurity - the link appears and System Security does not produce an error ? Guessing this must be a security setting preventing access ?

Regards,

Emmett O'Connor

    Are you using https? If not, then don't worry about the cacerts file.

    What directories and content did you migrate? Did you test this prior to migrating the content?

    The security server should be http://<machine name>/LHSecurity and not http://localhost/LHSecurity

    What happens when you attempt to navigate to http://<machine name>/LHSecurity from a client machine and on the server?

    Also check note 939130

    Hi,

    Not using https, no content has of yet been migrates as we have been testing the server prior to this.

    The security server is http://<machine name>/LHSecurity - but noticed this excludes the security manger link and throws up errors in the system security when set to this as opposed to when i input localhost insted of the machine name. Presuming this has to be some sort of access issue to do with xMII as it returns an error page when trying to run the URL to the default page.

    When i run http://<machine name>/LHSecurity from a browser on either the server or remote pc it returns the login page from which i can login - it returns login successful.

    Unfortunately don't have access to note 939130 as i dont have the system number at the moment.

    Regards,

    Emmett

      Sorry for the late reply Diana,

      Basically what was done on the website side of things was :

      Under IIS/WebsiteName - properties - website tab - advanced > in here we have setup an assosiciation so that anything hitting the web server IP address most have in its host header the assosiciation implemented here. So anybody wanting to verify against the security aspect of xMII had to got through the web host header (company.website.intra) and not against the machine.

      So http://machinename/LHSecurity wasn't finding the security aspect of xMII were as http://company.website.intra/LHSecurity does.

      Regards,

      Emmett
