Impact Server connected to the Backup Object Server at some stage and not able to get Impact Server to connect back to the Primary Object Server.
Creating another Event Reader to connect to the Primary Object Server is also failing with
Error Initializing the Service. Please look at netcool.log for more details. Reason:
Diagnosing the problem
Check whether client is running "Standard failover".
Resolving the problem
As per the Impact documentation,
Standard failover is a configuration in which an SQL database DS switches to a secondary database server when the primary server becomes unavailable and then continues using the secondary until Netcool/Impact is restarted. If the secondary server becomes unavailable, the SQL database DSA will attempt to resume connections using the original primary.
Restart the Impact Server for it to reconnect back to the Primary Object Server.
