NNM server does not appear to be operational
- (missing or bad snippet)
- Verify that the NNM server appears as Unable to Connect under Status.
- SSH to the remote NNM host to make sure the underlying operating system is operational.
Confirm that the NNM is running (Linux example below):
# service nnm status
NNM is stopped
NNM Proxy (pid 3142) is running
If the NNM service is not running, start the service:
# service nnm start
Starting NNM Proxy [ OK ]
Starting NNM [ OK ]
Cannot add an NNM server
Confirm that the NNM proxy is listening on the same port as Tenable.sc (port 8835 by default):
# ss -pan | grep 8835
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:8835 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 406/nnm
- Check connectivity by telnetting from the Tenable.sc console into the NNM server on port 8835 (the NNM listening port). If successful, the response includes: Escape character is '^]'.
