Unable to connect to Netprobe, Netprobe rejection, Netprobe unable to connect to gateway, Netprobe connection rejected.
When trying to connect a Netprobe to a Gateway, you are unable to connect and encounter the following:
In Active Console (Hover your mouse to the Netprobe):
In Netprobe log:
2021-08-09 14:09:06.116+0800 INFO: GW Accepting connection from gateway named 'MNL_PUGO_GATEWAY_test'.
2021-08-09 14:09:06.116+0800 INFO: ORB Gateway 'MNL_PUGO_GATEWAY_test' from pugo is not the first and has been rejected. Gateway is STAND-ALONE. Master Gateway name is MNL_PATO_GATEWAY connected from xxx.xxx.xxx.xx:53922.
2021-08-09 14:09:06.116+0800 INFO: ORB Adding to the non-master list. (0x375d550)

Root Cause 1 - The Netprobe is connected already to a Gateway and another Gateway is trying to connect to the said Netprobe.
Root Cause 2 - The port number of the Netprobe is configured incorrectly in the Gateway.
Root Cause 3 - For hot standby pair Gateway, Secondary Gateway will reject the Netprobe if it is still connected to the Primary Gateway. The Gateway name will be the same, but it will have a different IP Address. This information will be available in the Netprobe log.
Root Cause 4 - There is a conflict between 2 network interfaces.
Solution Root Cause 1 - If you need to add a monitoring on a different Gateway, you will need to run a new Netprobe instance with a different port number or remove the "probe" from the other gateway configuration.
Solution Root Cause 2 - You need to verify the Netprobe connection (i.e. use the right port number for each connecting Netprobe). Verify the listening port in the Netprobe is the correct one, check the gateway machine can connect to the port from the command line (eg: telnet hostname port)
Solution Root Cause 3 - You need to check if the Primary Gateway is still up. To switch the Netprobe to Secondary Gateway,
1) the Primary Gateway must be offline or
2) unreachable from the Netprobe host/process
Solution Root Cause 4 - You need to validate if the Netprobe is connected to the correct Gateway. This can be done by checking both Gateway and Netprobe logs. Look for the following log entries:
1. Netprobe log - will show which Gateway it is connecting to
2021-08-09 13:36:06.041+0800 INFO: GW Accepting connection from gateway named 'MNL_PATO_GATEWAY'.
2021-08-09 13:36:06.041+0800 INFO: ORB SL_CONNECTION_REQUEST Master Gateway connected from xxx.xxx.xxx.xx. Gateway is PRIMARY.
2021-08-09 13:36:06.250+0800 INFO: ORB ORB_SYNCH_EVENT Master Gateway connected from xxx.xxx.xxx.xx. Gateway is PRIMARY.
2. Gateway log - will show all the connected Netprobes on that Gateway
