Troubleshooting a Collection Server

The red exclamation point indicates that the Collection Server is offline.

Here are some troubleshooting tips to get it online:

  1. Try rebooting the Collection Server.
    1. Simply unplug the power from the back of the server
  2. Verify that the Collection Server has a valid internet connection via either Ethernet, cell modem, or wireless.
    1. If Ethernet; Press the F2 button on the collection server. Confirm that there is an IP address on the LCD. Also, confirm that a link light is on.
    2. If a cell modem is present; press the F1 button on the collection server. The LCD screen will show the signal strength of the modem. A percentage no less than (30) is expected.
    3. If wireless; Press the F3 button. If it is connected it will show the SSID on the LCD screen.
  3. Check Firewall.
    1. It’s possible that a Firewall is blocking connection to the Collection Server. Be sure that ports 52000 and 53226 are open on either a Windows Firewall or a specific company Firewall

    1. Cloud Account URL: https://sd.kcftech.com/elmah.axd

  6. Check the Configuration File.

    2. If Cloud; Verify that the <PrometheusURL> is https://sd.kcftech.com/restup/
