    updatemanager connection refused

      I am trying to register our system for updates using the updatemanager tool. Right after I start the tool from the command line, I get "WARNING: Failed to restart: java.rmi.NoSuchObjectException: no such object in table". After a moment, it shows the username and password screen. I put those in (they work for SunSolve), I get a few pages of Java error messages, the gist of which is:"java.rmi.ConnectException: Connection refused to host:", then it hangs until I ^C. I uninstalled then reinstalled the ppro, updatemanager, and swup series of packages, but it didn't make a difference. Suggestions?

            OK, I gave up and reinstalled Solaris. When I invoked updatemanager this time, I got the following message:

            Oct 7, 2010 1:03:14 PM java.util.prefs.FileSystemPreferences$2 run
            INFO: Created user preferences directory.

            There was also /.softwareupdate. I am sure that I had seen this directory when I was having a problem, deleted it, and it still wouldn't initialize properly, but now it has reasonable looking files in it. Everything initialized properly and I am running updates now. Go figure.
