Error. Could not connect to storage daemon

On this page

Error message

Message logs in the Management Console of the Cloud Failover Appliance (CFA) show the following error if the CFA cannot connect to a backup client:

bnet.c_1011 Could not connect to storage daemon on CFA-IP:9103. ERR=Connection refused

Steps to resolve

Our services are not running on the client. A firewall may be blocking the connection from the client to the CFA on port 9103.

A quick backup of a reduced file set (with No Change on Full enabled) should help diagnose if the problem still exists after firewall changes or other network fixes.
