Snapcreator 4.1p1 not server agent appears to start but unable connect to port 8080

[ Edited ]

Hi, I have been running SC server 4.0P1.  I upgraded it to 4.1P1 x64 and now I cannot connect on port 8080

Looking in the event log I see the following message when the SnapCreatorServerService starts.  Since it seems to be java related, I have upgrade java to the latest version - both 32 and 64 bit.  Thanks in advance for the help!  Michael.

Re: Snapcreator 4.1p1 not server agent appears to start but unable connect to port 8080


Are you saying that this worked fine and then you upgraded to the 64-bit version?

If you open a command prompt and run:  java -version I'll guess that the reported version of Java is 32-bit. (64-bit will say 64-bit, otherwise it won't say anything).

If this is the case the issue is that the OS default version of java is 32-bit.

As such Snap Creator is not able to start the 64-bit version.

Change your OS settings so that the 64-bit version is the default version (or even uninstall the 32-bit version if that is an option).

If you want to verify that Java is the issue you can open a command prompt and change to the directory where Snap Creator is installed.

Change to the engine subdirectory and run the command:  java -jar snapcreator.jar

The error should be displayed on screen.

Please let us know if you need additional help.

Hi John,

I know that I was on 4.0P1 and I ‘m pretty certain it was 64bit. I upgraded to 4.1P1 64bit. I did what you suggested and uninstalled the 32 bit version of java. No luck. I still get this error in my application event log and cannot connect to port 8080. Thanks! Here is the output from the cmd prompt when running the java –jar command:

Re: Snapcreator 4.1p1 not server agent appears to start but unable connect to port 8080


One of the big changes from Snap Creator 4.0 to Snap Creator 4.1 is that we enabled HTTPS communications for Snap Creator.

As such you have to use a HTTPS port - the default is 8443.

I do not think we can use port 8080 as it is a HTTP port.

Looking at the above output it looks like Snap Creator connected on port 8443 since 8080 was not an option.

Can you try accessing Snap Creator on 8443?

You may need to change the port where Snap Creator runs.

You can stop Snap Creator, then go to the Snap Creator installation directory and into the engine/etc subdirectory.

If you are using the defaults this would be:

C:\Program Files\NetApp\Snap_Creator_Framework\scServer4.1P1\engine\etc

edit the file

Change this line:


To reflect whatever port you want to use that is a HTTPS supported port.  The port also needs to be available for use.

Save the file and start the Snap Creator service.

Hope this helps!

Aw .. Ok. It looks like I’m in business. I’m used to connecting on port 8080 so kept trying that. I read the install doc, but not change notes and didn’t see anything about the change to https. I saw during the install, it was defaulting to 8443, but I thought that was what the agent used perhaps. I did try connecting on 8443 anyway, but didn’t thing to try https especially since even the documentation I saw, it talked about connecting on 8080.

In any case, I copied my config files back in and kicked off a job which just completed successfully. What a relief!

Thanks for the help.

Glad to hear it is working now - Should have caught this one from the title
