rcpd: 0xcafe

Nov 09 06:45:27 : Final status is -1

No RCPD.OUT file is created on the Secondary SpectroSERVER indicating the rcpd process was not run.

 

CAUSE:  A firewall is preventing the communication between the Primary SpectroSERVER processd and rcpd to the Secondary SpectroSERVER processd and rcpd. 

 

RESOLUTION:  Open the following ports from the Primary SpectroSERVER to the Secondary SpectroSERVER:

65259

61904

51966

 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:  For more information on the ports that need to be opened through a firewall for Spectrum, please reference chapter 3 "Communication Across Firewalls in the Distributed SpectroSERVER Environment" in the "Distributed SpectroSERVER Administrator Guide" and the "Communication Across Firewalls" section in the Spectrum 10 document.
