Post subject: BCA on Windows 2008 Server

Hi, As a temporary measure on a BO platform we would like to run BCA on Bo 6.5 operating on a Windows 2008 Server as a "belt and braces" solution until superseeded. We are however experiencing the message below in the config log file when initialising BCA and has anyone experienced this type of issue before in the log and how could it be overcome? currently checking java version and looking at environment variables which has not been successful so far, any suggestions greatly appreciated:

"OUTPUT>[LOG][111] : - OS_TYPE = 'MSWin32'
OUTPUT>[LOG][111] :

I have not hear of BCA since years!!!! Memories of when I was younger. However.
For what I remember, as soon as the node starts, the ORB sends a multicast to contact other nodes.
Try sniffing network traffic, because this might be an issue due to Win2008 internal firewall rules.
Beyond this, I remember that by version 6.x we dropped old Visigenic CORBA for the (by those time) newer ORBIX implementation.
Try chasing some documentation upon it, and in case share the log you get so to have a deeper detail on what's going on.
My 2 cents (even less than 2. Sorry)

When you are right, there is no need to yell. When you are not right, there is no reason to yell.
