ADS_AGENT destination registration not working
I am trying to the do the destination registration step from visual admin and get a a real long message along the lines of: Error during ping operation: Error while silently connecting.......httpexception: Unable to contact target Server http://host:8005 after 1 tries. What is weird is that I have used the public ping and the bc/ping and they all work fine. With my own ID and PW, I can load the test page from http://host:8005/sap/bc/fp/form/layout/fp_test_00.xdp, but userid ads_agent cannot. ads_agent is setup as documentented with the proper role and all of the abap tests work except those that want to reach the destination service.
This is all on BI 7.0, SPS12 with BI Java also at SPS12. Any ideas would be appreciated. I do get note 915399 like symptoms, have done all the steps and no change. Adobe reader version is 8.1.0
