SIM 5.02 on HP-UX error Connection to repository server failed.

SIM 5.02 on HP-UX error Connection to repository server failed.

I have been unable to successflly run through any of these commands because the Database config part always fails and gives back an error saying that connection to the repository server failed.. This is done right after a fresh install of HP-UX 11.23 Dec 2007 ... my hosts file and resolv.conf file has all the correct settings in them. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Have a look at my output below :

# mxinitconfig -l

Re: SIM 5.02 on HP-UX error Connection to repository server failed.

hi nicholai,
I had the same problem but was using the sql server.The sql server was not binding with the tcp port.

open your /etc/my.cnf file file (or whichever file has mysql configurations on your OS) and add the line

bind-address=127.0.0.1

Restart MySQL. The netstat -an command will show MySQL listening on only the loopback address on TCP port 3306, and your application should continue to work as expected.
If not change TCP port to 1433 for that address. dont know exactly how its done on your version of UX

It should work then

I have the same problem where Database Configuration failed

I solved it by creating new user hpsmdb and change the owner of /var/opt/hpsmdb directory from root to hpsmdb and run mxinconfig -a again.
