  2. Hi Aziz,

    May I have your kind advise regarding jnbSA?

    This is regarding status code 505 in Solaris 9. This machine was relocated from site A to site B. I’ve changed the IP’s. But when I want to launch the jnbSA below error occured :

    Unable to login, status: 505
    Can not connect to the NB-Java authentication service on on the configured port – 13722.

    Exception: java.lang.NullPointerException
    Exception message: null

    Action Taken :
    Follow from Symantec Web.

    Perhaps you can direct me to where should i look.

    Warmest Regards,
    Razali Shoib

  3. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read? dadfkdaebdfe
