It means DTLREXE failed at startup.
How did you run DTLREXE?
If you used the start menu entry, then it is defined to ping the PWX Listener named "node1", running on the local box.
If you want to ping something else, you need to edit the .bat file that runs, or run the command from the command line, or create a different .bat file that executes the DTLREXE command you want to use.
Default behaviour is described in the PWX Navigator User Guide, or in this KB:
I had modified .bat file as in the link you suggest to me to ping the listener i want ,but it still give me the same error
here is my LISTENER and NODE statement in dbmover.cfg
i want to ping this listener which is on 192.168.0.85
Thank You in advance
The LISTENER statement defines a PWX Listener isntance.
It is only used by the PWX Listener, and only if it is in the DBMOVER.CFG that is used to start that PWX Listener.
It really makes no difference in other situations.
The NODE statements define where PWX can look for things.
Normally, that means a PWX Listener.
By default, the DTLREXE command in dtlping.bat looks like this:
dtlrexe loc=node1 prog=ping
"loc=" is the NODE statement in the local DBMOVER.CFG that DTLREXE will attempt to connect to.
If you have this in the local DBMOVER.CFG:
Then to ping that PWX Listener, you would
dtlrexe loc=mynode prog=ping
If there is a PWX Listener active at the location pointed to by that NODE statement, then you will get an "OK!" response from DTLREXE.
If the IP address is wrong, or the PORT is wrong, or the PWX Listener isn't running, then DTLREXE won't be able to connect, and the ping attempt will fail.
