This could also indicates a wrong address stored in database for a scalability server (due to a resolution name problem).

Following SQL Query displays the name of Collect Job with its associated Scalability Server Host Name

SELECT n.joname 'Job Name', s.host_name 'Scalability Server Name'
FROM ncjobcfg n, ca_server s
WHERE n.jotype =10 and UPPER(n.jocmd)=UPPER(convert(char(50),s.server_uuid,2))
If an invalid host name is displayed following should be done :
1- Correct the DNS resolution problem. Domain Manager tries to resolve the IP Address of Scalability Server to name. Resolution of IP Address should return the correct name.
2- Delete the Scalability Server with invalid hostname in DSM Explorer under Control Panel/Scalability servers/All Scalability Server
3- On the scalability server execute this :
cserver -c reset
caf register all
cserver register -a

4- Scalability Server should be created again in database. Check with SQL Query above if hostname is correct.

Link the new created Collect Job to the appropriate Engine.
