Java API failed with GetInitializationInfo

Could anyone tell me why I would get a "a2i.core.StringException: GetInitializationInfo failed

" exception when logging in to a Catalog? I have verified MDM4J.jar matches MDM server, verified correct Port Number, userid and password. I am able to connect to other catalogs on the same MDM server, running the same Java code. I am able to connect to the same repository via Data Manager and view, update, add records. Below is the full message.

When you assign a port number to an MDM repository, MDM also used PORT1 and PORT2 for its various functions.

For example, if your repository uses port 5000, then MDM will also use 5001 and 5002. This can occasionally cause unexpected port conflict with other programs, and this might have been the cause of your original problem.
