compact HMI system not starting
E_AFW_CS_NOCONN means the connection between the Server and Aspect Directory is broken.
If This is happeneing on any server and One Aspect directory Server is up and running. Then you try deleting the system on the node and try connecting it to the AS.
IS this is happeneding on the first AS server itself? WAs the system running previously? Any changes to the system after which this was seen..?
Does any AfwADServer.exe process appear in Windows Task Manager?
If not, you may have a corrupted SMData.dat file (read information item on bottom of page 25 in 3BUA000156-511D). A corrupted file will compress to virtually nothing (<100 bytes, yes bytes not kilobytes) while a healthy file will shrink to 10-50 kilobytes (try Send To Compressed (zipped) folder). This file is critical for starting up the 800xA services in one-server-node-systems.
Otherwise its probably time to restore a backup of your system.
