Article ID: 242982


Updated On:


DX Unified Infrastructure Management (Nimsoft / UIM) CA Unified Infrastructure Management On-Premise (Nimsoft / UIM)


Running sdgtw 2.28 ,the integration with Remedy was working fine until restarted the probe,

Tried downgrading to 2.25, reinstalling the probe, upgrading to 2.2 and re configuring it from scratch but it still fails to connect.

It now fails validation and not creating tickets.

No changes in remedy today
Able to telnet to the port on the remedy servers and also connect using curl from the server with sdgtw installed




Release : 20.4

Component :sdgw

BMC Remedy : 20.02


Can see below errors in sdgw logs

In this use case, issue was resolved by uploading the jar files again, it seems that somehow the jar files were deleted by the upgrade of the probe

If you are using BMC Remedy integration and upgrading the probe to version 2.0 or later, you must copy the BMC JAR files again in the lib folder to use BMC Remedy
