The error message is "host not responding".
But OB2 server can ping clients and viceversa. Remote shell port are open from OB2 server to clients and 5555/tcp port is open too.
Why does it not work ?
Did I forget aything ?
Thanx in advance
Solved! Go to Solution.

First of all let me refer you to the administrators guide where there are some notes about firewalls. In the long run you will need to open MANY ports.
Even doing that won't help with installation, however... Unfortunately I have not found a good document that discusses which ports we need at installation time. We certainly need to be able to run something like RCP, REXEC, RSH.
We copy our data into place, and do some checking, execute something like swinstall...
Many people with firewalls find it is just simpler to manually install the binaries from CD onto either the target host directly, or to an installation server on the far side of the firewall.

Attention OB II is very sensitive according to the domain name resolution. You MUST have in your /etc/hosts file the client name and address as follow ( for exemple ):
188.8.131.52 wilma.hp.com wilma WILMA
And be really sure that no problem of coherance between /etc/hosts and DNS Database otherwise alot of troubles could rise.
