Issue/Introduction

Many tasks have failed in CA IDM.

Looks like most of them were trying to provision or de-provisioning AD groups from a specfic domain.
We have already synced all of the failed tasks and trying to investing the root cause of this.
Mentioned below are the log information of Connector Server:

Resolution

The etatrans.log indicates that the failures were caused by the java connector server not being able to connect to the C++ connector server. The C++ server, per the logging below,  refers to this connector server:

ldap://localhost:2040
.

The C++ service may not have been running or was experiencing problems. Did you need to restart any services to get processing to continue? You can check the im_ps.log to see if it logged any errors. However, if the requests from JCS never made it to the C++ server there will be nothing in the logs.
