Is a reboot necessary after updating /etc/services.
We are installing GRC 5.3 on our Solution Manager Box. We added the backend systems in the /etc/services file. When trying to create the Jco connections, we are getting the following error: com.sap.mw.jco.JCO$Exception: (102) RFC_ERROR_COMMUNICATION: Connect to message server host failed Connect_PM TYPE=B MSHOST=sapsandbox3 GROUP=BISANDBOX R3NAME=WBS MSSERV=sapmsWBS PCS=1 LOCATION CPIC (TCP/IP) on local host with Unicode ERROR service 'sapmsWBS' unknown TIME Mon Feb 09 17:20:02 2009 RELEASE 700 COMPONENT NI (network interface) VERSION 38 RC -3 MODULE nixxhsl.cpp LINE 776 DETAIL NiHsLGetServNo: service name cached as unknown COUNTER 1
Do we need to reboot the server or is there another problem here?
Juan Reyes replied
now that I did that, do I need to reboot the server for those new entries to take affect because I am still getting the same error?
No, usually theres no need to reboot but... this message...
service name cached as unknown COUNTER 1
makes me think that maybe a reboot is not a bad idea.
