Revit Local Server - Cannot Connect

2014 Views, 1 Replies

I have successfully installed a Revit Central Server. I also installed two Revit Local Server with mixed results.

 

All three servers are successfully synchronizing.

The problem comes when any user tries to connect to one of the local servers.

 

It gets a connect error

“Revit server 10.10.10.89 was not found. Check the name or IP address of the server and try again.”

 

Central Server – 132.132.0.70 - connected

Local Server 1 – 132.132.8.136 - connected

Local Server 2 – 10.10.10.89 – cannot connect

 

Does Revit server not work across different IP subnet?

Make sure that each local server can query the DNS to access the central server name:
There is a potential issue is attempting to connect Revit Servers when a VPN or separate domains are in place.  You may run into issues connecting the local and central servers if each is located in a separate domain.
If this is similar to your setup, one possible solution is to add the host information into DNS.   Then the DNS server can resolve the central server IP address.  Some additional information is organized in the link below:
