Error in Cognos Configuration at start:
[ ERROR ] CFG-ERR-0106 IBM Cognos Configuration did not receive a response from the IBM Cognos service in the time allotted.
Check that IBM Cognos service is available and properly configured.
16:31:03, ‘LogService’, ‘StartService’, ‘Success’.
Ensure DEP is only for needed processes.
Check that the if the server have two network cards, they are correct configured.
Check that the IP address and interface metric is not the same as other cards on the server.
Test to change to IBM cognos instead of NIST SP 800-131A.
Check that the IP addresses in cognos configuration is then one of your server.
Check for ports in use with DOS command: netstat -a | find “9300”
Export the configuration, and recreate the crypto keys; like this
1. Stop the running of your service in Cognos Configuration.
2. On the Content Manager computer, click ‘File > Export As’.
3. Choose ‘Yes’ at the prompt and save the file. For example, name it ‘backup.xml’ which will be stored in the c11\configuration folder.
4. Close Cognos Configuration.
5. On the Content Manager computer
5.1 Create a backup of the following files before moving them to a different, secure location (as during the cryptographic keys regeneration process they will be re-created):
The files are:
5.2 Create a backup of the following directories before moving it to a different, secure location (as during the cryptographic keys regeneration process they will be re-created). Alternatively you can also rename the directories.
The directory is
6. In the c11\configuration folder, rename ‘backup.xml’ to ‘cogstartup.xml’.
7. Open Cognos Configuration, save the configuration and start the services.
Restart windows server and see if that helps.
