XI Content Import Invalidates Runtime Cache

Hello Everybody,

We are facing a weird problem with XI Runtime Cache. We imported a few XI Contents from SMP a few days back. After importing them, the XI cache stopped refreshing. The error says 'if_http_client receive http_communication_failure' with error id 'COMMUNICATION'. Our first guess was that somehow the user for HTTP Destination INTEGRATION_DIRECTORY_HMI has been locked. But we checked and the user was OK. Then we searched in SDN and according to similar forum threads, deleted the HTTP destination,recreated it and all. We also skimmed through 'How-To-Guide' on XI caches and found entries to be in synch. But the problem still persists. In IR, Environment->Cache Notifications, we find everything green; but in ID, we find entries which state 'Cache Update Failed' with the same error text as above. But, we didn't do anything in ID!! Has anybody faced a situation similar to this and solved it? We will be glad to hear about it. [And will also make people glad by awarding points! ]

P.S.: We are on NW2004s PI 7.0 SP09.

Thanks and Sincere Regards,
