NWDS J2EE Engine Tab Not Showing Instance


My client did a recent reboot of their J2EE Engine, and once they were done I was unable to deploy applications to the server. Each time I try I get an error stating:

"Deployment exception : Cannot determine sdm host (is empty). Please configure your engine/sdm correctly !"

My settings haven't changed and they say neither have theirs. The odd thing is that the J2EE Engine tab in NWDS no longer shows the instance (so I can't see the J2EE Server, the Dispatcher or the SDM nodes anymore) but I still see the Cluster Monitors as I did before.

I can still open the applications in my browser using the same url as before. Very strange. What could cause this? I doubt the message server is down as the application stil runs fine.

Any ideas on what I can have them check?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
