CBS activity search and DTR permissions in NWDS



I have a problem that may be three problems:

1) In CBS, the activity search fails.

The error says there is a communication error.

The J2EE log (defaultTrace) says "401 Unauthorized".

It does not matter what user ID I use. I even tried the emergency user.

2) In NWDS, I cannot set DTR permissions

as instructed in

The "view permissions" screen appears, and "add principle" screen also appears.

Pressing "OK" does not do anything. The screen just sits there.

3) In NWDS, the activation fails.


My questions:

1) What, in your experience, does "401 unauthorized" mean?

2) Happen to know about this behaviour? Where can I troubleshoot NWDS?

3) What, in your experience, does COMMUNICATION_ERROR imply?


I have installed the system with template installer.

The NW2004s sp stack is number 9.
