All Supported Versions


Issue is related to multiple NIC cards on server and there was a time out attempting to connect fast channel to web:local on the appserver.

The connection cannot reach the slump because is not routing to the correct NIC associated to SDM.


Workaround 1:

Configure Priority to NIC that has the SDM server IP configured.
(Refer to the Microsoft support KB article from additional information)

Workaround 2:

- On each server, open the NX.ENV file and locate the following lines:

# Uncomment this to turn off Fast Channel


- Remove the leading exclamation point and space in front of NX_NOFASTCHAN. The line should now look like the following:


- Save changes and restart server.

Making this modification will disable Fast Channel communication entirely, which will also remove those error entries from logs.

After these changes, restart servers services in this order:

Start SDM-BG server
Start SDM-Stby server
Start SDM-APP servers for webservices
