After getting the pre-requiste perl modules installed today I've repatedly tried to execute the 'Service Catalog Initialize' workflow and repeatedly get an error similar to:
Unable to contact WFA service url http://localhost:80/rest/execution/jobcommand/8f905378-3aee-421c-8cb4-ad8b1435d203 at C:/Program Files/NetApp/WFA/Perl64/lib/WFAUtil.pm line 551, <STDIN> line 1.
... at different steps within the workflow
Each one of errors comes after a 3-minute delay so I'm assuming something is timing out. I've noticed these symtoms and tried a few things:
it is not always the same command step. The example below shows it failing on step-3 but I've also seen it run through to step-8 (Install QoS Service ) and then fail on that steps with the same error ... it has failed this way one 3 different steps at different runs (out of the fisrt 8 steps)
wondering if a credential for 'localhost' was in play (I had one setup previously) I changed it, and finally deleted it, seeming to make no difference - is anything required in he way of a credential (localhost) for this pack?
when running a second time I'll sometimes go into the WFA Cache DB and pre-delete (drop) all the tables it was able to create on the last run, seems to make no difference
I've looked at workflow logs and just don't see anyting revealing
Here is screenshot of error:

Windows 2008R2 Standard SP1
SLO Pack 1.1.0
This seems intermittment since it's has occured at 3 different command steps in the workflow, all with essentually the same 'Unable to connect' error following a 3-minute delay.
Ideas for things to look into? This WFA server has been in use for over a year.
Not sure exactly what you mean by 'check the setup' but nothing about any version of perl shows up in the Control Panel to 'Uninstall' a version of perl. To my knowledge the only perl on the system is that which is sitting under the \NetApp\WFA\perl64 path. But if there is some other way to check let me know.
