Vantage AppServers This broker is no longer active

Hello,

I am having this same issue… any suggestions please? Thank you!
I am installing Vantage 8.03.408B (SQL db) on a new virtual server (my current server is dying a slow and painful death) and get an error message every time I try to start the AppServers in Progress Explorer. It starts but stops before it can become active with a message of “This broker is no longer active (CMNMsg028)”. Most likely it’s just a setting or step I overlooked.

Can anyone offer any suggestions?

Hi @Dora,

Does this help at all?

I remember back in Vantage 8 days having to do a lot of searching on the Progress sites.

Here’s another one just in case it could be helpful…

Thank you so much!!! I will review :slight_smile:

But the database starts?
If so, is “Vantage 8.03 Admin Tools” tools listed on your Windows menu, will that start?
.

The hardware? If so, just make an image of the dying server, and install it on a VM simulating the architecture of the original server. :wink:

Nope… it will not start… Getting:
**CRC for CntgVer does not match CRC in SqlVer.p Try recompiling (1896)

Not that it helps with your current error, but following up on Calvin’s response I had very good luck using VMware’s PtoV tool on our Vantage server. Just a thought if you continue to run into issues… The one thing I had to keep in mind was the hard drive controller needed to be IDE for it to boot without blue screening.

Possible a wrong patch installed?

ISO Standard = pa803xxxx-S.EXE 8.03.xxx S for SQL Std
Unicode = Pa803xxxx-SU.EXE 8.03.xxx - SU for SQL Unicode

Can you verify if you DB is UNICODE or ISO8859-1 and if needed rerun using the correct 803 patch.
Try login to Admin tools and run conversions?
