Accepted Solution!

so you applied the CHF3 to

so you applied the CHF3 to both servers?  I only ask because in the dtrace it seems that the EVINDEX server thinks it needs to upgrade the EV Database.

Did you install both servers

Did you install both servers at the same time? Did you see this in the log?  What happens if you shut down the other EV Server and restart this one?

Does this new server show in

Does this new server show in the EV Admin console?  You might want to uninstall it and start over.
