I have upgraded HP SIM to 7.3 including the latest hotfix and installed VCRM 126.96.36.199 but I cannot get any VCA's to connect.
Every attempt to connect from different servers comes back with The specified repository, servername, is invalid or not reachable.. I have updated the VCA to v188.8.131.52 but it stills fails.
Is there a mismatch between running VCRM 7.4 on HPSIM 7.3 or am I missing something fundamental. I don't have a firewall enabled, I'm running windows server 2008 R2 on HPSIM server and client.
Any ideas please because it's getting frustrating now.
Thanks in advance

Tonkers just to point out VCRM stuff usally goes here
This can be caused by a restart of the VCRM server as it causes a reindex of the entire repositry which can take a few hours and causes clients to have the repository to appear as "down".
Can also be caused a failed login from a server with an old version of VCRA I believe this is a bug, basically the failed logon causes a manager service restart which of course causes a reindex of the system. Why it works this way I do not know nor have I logged a bug with HP. Its hard because I cannot repro it every time and it also sometimes happens randomly but its far more prevelant on boxes with old agent versions. Note here the current version of the agent that is in the HP repositry is like 7.2.2 but the current release is 7.3.X not sure why the have not allowed the new version to download.
VCRM is very finnacky they really need to nail down some addional preformance and reliability enhancements.
