I had the same problem about two weeks ago,spoke to support and they had to copy files from the core and overwrite the files on the offcore server
we stopped both inventory services
went onto the offcore server,into the install directory
Find the files that are in that directory, go off to the core and replace them one at a time on the offcore
Entered the off core server name in the advanced settings of the inventory service
started them both up and it worked
For some reason the offcore server had older software
Hope this helps
....done this post on my itouch
I thought you had to apply SP4 to the off-core inventory server somehow.
I have never used one, but I don't see a service pack installer to patch that, however, the readme for the service pack says to just install the LD87-SP4-Core to the off-core inventory server.
Maybe that is why when they replaced the files one at a time it fixed it. Because it wasn't at the right service pack?
Thank you for your reply, both of you. I will test this asap. I didn't think about service pack, but it sounds a nice idea
I'll look that way and keep you updated,
Yes you have to apply the service pack, which i originaly did but that didnt make a difference.
You run the core patch setup.exe on the off-core server for the service pack to be applied
In order to see the license the off-core inventory server must be able to see the core and the database server the core is using. Are you able to ping the database server by name? You may need to use the fqdn.
I installed the SP4-Core on the Off-Core inventory server as you suggested and it is working fine now.
I thought the install of SP4-Core on the Core-server would upgrade the installation source for the Off-Core inventory server but it does not...
Thank you all of you for your help,
