Shareplex Manager connects through the web-services to the shareplex instances using the shareplex port. You can test the connection using the web-services URL. Instructions are below:
1. Log on to web-services URL using port 3000 instead of 8080 used for foglight.
This takes you to the web services homepage.
2. Click on Observation API . Select String connect (string host,int port,string user,string password).
Enter the Information for Host,port,User and password.
You need to enter the information for the shareplex instance server you want to test the connection for. The user is the shareplex user on that machine. These credentials are same as the ones entered in the discovery stage.
Click on invoke this gives you a Return Value which is the Handle . Save this number. (the handle changes each time web-services re-connects 60 sec's).
3. Go back to the Observation API select String version and enter the handle. This should return the data namely shareplex version. You can test any of the API Methods For Observer, it should return data.
If not it will print the error, this will provide insight as to why the connection is failing.
