Release : 12.x, 14.x

Component : CA ControlMinder - Unix, PAMSC


The policyfetcher process cannot reach the DH_WRITER process in order to request the updates from the distribution server.


Steps to resolve

  1. check the hostname and port configured is correct
  2. check the hostname is resolvalbe
  3. check the port is accessable

Actually, we don’t need  WebEx anymore,  I found the root cause of 10071 error.

(You can close that ticket).  Based on the process you showed me on  recreate the DH__WRITER,

I was able to create the DH__WRITER and the endpoint was able to connect to it.

Additional Information

There is a similar error seen in the same log when the policy fetcher can access the DH_WRITER but is cannot access the local seosdb on the endpoint 

In the policyfetcher.log you will see " failed to connect to host "localhost"; error code: 10071 "
