Why cannot I connect to an OOB Server running on a clustered windows server using virtual IP addressing?

If you find that a telnet <server name> 8888 fails with "Connecting To
<server_name>...Could not open a connection to host on port 8888 : Connect
failed" try a netstat -a command on the server running the bridge
server. You should see the following returned:


TCP <server_name>:8888 &server_name>:0 LISTENING

This confirms the OOB Server is running and listening on port 8888.

If the server returns the above then there could be the likelihood that you may be connecting to the wrong host name/IP Address. Try running an ipconfig /all command and entering the IP address as returned from this. We have seen this kind of behavior on clustered windows servers using virtual IP addresses.
