    Cannot connect to localhost:5989. Connection failed. Trying to connect to localhost:5989

  • Description

    This message occurs when HTTPS connections are disabled or the HTTPS port is not set to 5989, or if the provider has stopped working and remains in a hanging state.

  • Corrective action

    Verify that the values of enableHttpsConnection and httpsPort are correct:

    cimconfig -g enableHttpsConnection

    cimconfig -g httpsPort

    If enableHttpsConnection is not set to “true”, enter the following commands:

    cimconfig -s enableHttpsConnection -p

    smis cimserver restart

    If httpsPort is not set to 5989, enter the following commands:

    cimconfig -s httpsPort=5989 -p

    smis cimserver restart

    If the provider has stopped working and remains in a hanging state, open Task Manager and end the process, and then restart the provider.
