Problem reaching security server on 8.98 upgrade.


VIP Member

I am trying to upgrade to from 8.97 and have installed the HTML server.


Our consultant (and me) don't see a reason why the login shouldn't work.

I would like to test to this point, so I tried a JDE login process, but in the instance startup I get 'could not reach security server error'.

Here is the log (it's short)

My config is:
ES As/400 8.97, JAS OAS, E812

Eventually the login appears to continue but I just get the header bar (with my name correct, and the signoff next to it).

Other items: I can ping JDEPROD no problem from the JAS server.

One other idea I have is that there is a new security section in 8.98 of the ini that references _GLOBALNODE an _GLOBALPWD, I have retained these values.

My questions are: 1) should I be able to log in? 2) any idea why it can't find the security server?

with metalink down, any ideas would be appreciated.

There are some subtle changes as well as a planner update for this release (8.98).

This is going to sound like a dumb question but how can you access the 8.98 security server with 8.97 security server still running on your ES?

We have not had any security issues with our upgrade from 8.96 to 8.98.1 by keeping everything in sync. One advantage to dealing with these tools releases is by installing multi-foundation. Are you running MF? Maybe I am just old school but I believe that your ES is the ruler of your enterprise. I believe it is important to update the system on the ES to 8.98.1.x along with your Web Server and/or WebDev Client.

I don't disagree with you. I just work under the constraints that I have

I have the planner ESU installed. Unfortunately it didn't cure my build issues. I'm getting CER logs for some NER's I didn't get in 8.97. Have an SR open on that (At least I hope it's still there).

Multi-foundation is a good idea, I have it planned planned, but unfortunatly it is still in the future.

Luckily I have the luxury of 3 ES's (and if I can get a hold of Oracle and find out they have to be in sync, my DEV ES will become 8.98). I just have had no end of problems getting to this point, so I am being super carefull in testing.

Thanks for the input.
