Issue/Introduction

Cannot establish connection to Spectrum OneClick with spectrumgtw probe when  UIM Server and DX Spectrum are installed on the same system.

Is the UIM / DX Spectrum integration with the spectrumgtw probe supported the  UIM Server, DX Spectrum SpectroServer, and CA Spectrum OneClick are all installed on the same system?

Environment

Any supported combination of  UIM, spectrumgtw probe, and DX Spectrum installation will be available at:

Resolution

This configuration has never been tested.

It is strongly recommend that DX Spectrum and UIM Server are not installed on the same system.

This configuration will put a tremendous strain on the system resources and will undoubtedly result in poor performance of both products.

The recommended configuration is to install each product on their own systems. This may explain why the spectrumgtw probe fails to create a connection to the configured DX Spectrum OneClick (OC) since the probe was never certified to have to support the OC running on the same system as the probe itself.
