    Hi Pramod,

    It may be because of:

    1. Either your repository on Client machine is not loaded.

    2. Check that GUI clients on local machine and your client server are of the same version.

    Try to open the MDM Data Manager by choosing , IP address of your MDM server client machine instead XYZ. then corresponding to that MDM server "IP address" it should show the list of all your loaded repositories using Repository tab.

    if you could check then also try to mount that client MDM server using MDM Console, you can see whether your repository is loaded or not.

    Hope it helps you,

      Hi Pramod,

      since u have done most of the checks some clarifications:

      how huge is the data in repository u want to connect?

      Did u try to unload and update indices(not reload) the repository?This may work if any changes in data model has been done for the repo.

      Also see the xml schemas defined in console. are the path correct?try deleting them and load the repository.It may work

    Basically the Data Manager is unable to connect to the server when you get this message.

    Two things to try:

    1) Verify that that repository that you are trying to connect to is indeed up and running.

    2) Try to ping the server from your client machine. If the client is unable to see the server then it may be a network issue.

    Have you tried installing any of the other GUI clients on the machine and tried to connect to the repository with them? Chances are you will get the same error. My guess is that either the repository is not loaded and running, or there is a network issue with the client machine trying to see the server machine.

      Hi Tim,

      Thanks for your quick reply.

      I noticed one thing I am able to access data manager through GUI installed on server when I remotely log into the server(server name displayed as but when i try to connect data manager from GUI(local machine, server name displayed as only XYZ).

      Does this cause any problem.
