Web I 5.1.2 Admin panel issues


We have Web I 5.1.2 installed on Win 2000 server with SP4.Recently we tried building a test environment and everything else is working fine except Web I admin console.I’ve installed JRE1.4 but still it hangs up when userd/pwd are supplied.The error message displayed is Can’t connect to cluster manager.I have referred various topics posted here but nothing seems to be working with my environment.

Anyone could give e more tips to get this rectified.

Thanks in advance…

I was never able get that version to run well on SP4. I believe BO never supported SP4 for WebI 2.7.2 (5.1.2).

No good ideas. Everything in the Admin panel can also be adjusted in some text files. But, it has been so many years since I have worked on a V5 system, that I don’t remember which ones.
