OCS2007R2 Retrieving data failed from Mediation Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • On a Front End Server, for a Mediation Server status I am getting a "Retrieving data failed!" message. On the Mediation Server itself, the Mediation service has a Running status. Any ideas on why the Front End is not able to retrieve data? I saw one MS page about this message and that it was due to the Mediation Server being in some foreign language version, but that is not the case here.

    Any thoughts? Thanks.

  • Try if it works with Windows Firewall on Mediation Server disabled - this is the main reason for that problem.

  • Yes, that works. Thanks very much. I should have checked this. I was wondering if I could keep the firewall on but make an exception for the mediation service. There is an inbound TCP exception but not outbound. Will have to play with the firewall to see if I can create such an exception.
