OK, having played with permissions and ensuring a new account, pdf01, has full admin access, I now get this in the "failure" file:
Failure Time----Sun Feb 13 21:43:46 EST 2011
source location ---- Reason of failure is-----Failure to invoke the job GeneratePDFServicePaul
Failure to invoke the job GeneratePDFServicePaul
Failed to get the context on behalf of user pdf01, domain DefaultDom for watch folder GeneratePDFServicePaul
ALC-DSC-600-000: com.adobe.idp.dsc.provider.service.scheduler.impl.SchedulerRuntimeException: Failure to invoke the job GeneratePDFServicePaul
Any ideas anyone?
Many thanks for looking.
Is the GeneratePDFServicePaul a workflow that you (or someone else) has built? I've seen other failures, but I'm not familiar with any with the "Paul" suffix.
No I had not built any work flow like that...what is that "Paul" ?
This problem may occurred when using VM as your livecycle server, and a change happened to the VM's ip address or to the VM's network adapter type (from NAT to bridged).
this change may cause such error, so you can check your VM's ip.
