Initial Connection to server failed (Error 117).

If you are attempting to connect to a server that has two or more network interface cards (NICs), it could indicate a Java RMI binding problem where the first NIC (the one that appears first in the output of ipconfig utility) has a non-reachable IP address.


You may need to reorder the protocol binding for use by the network services of the LifeKeeper for Windows server. On each LifeKeeper for Windows server, open “Network and Dial-up Connections”, and on the Advanced menu, select Advanced Settings. The List Box at the top of the dialog shows the current order of the NIC cards. Click the arrow button to reorder them so that the reachable NIC is at the top of the list. This should enable Java RMI to allow client to connect to the server. A reboot of the server is required for this to take effect.
