Here is what I found out on the webMethods Advantage site.

Assuming you have correctly isntalled and configured the workflow server. You will get the above error if you use “localhost” for the workflow server name. It seems that java RMI does not work well with a “localhost” name. All I had to do is use the workflow configurator and enter my server name instead.

Also make sure the port you are using for the workflow server is not already being used by something else! See netstat -a

Hi All,

I am Working with IS6.0.1SP2 and DeveloperSP1,i configured workflow server and client , both are running fine, when i configure Physical Server(IS) in WmAdmin window,it is configured without error, but when i configure Physical Server(Workflow) giving RMI(5001) and central host ports(5000)

Error thrown::
Failed to retrieve resource information from the server<servername>
Error:[ISC.0064.9324]Server Error:Not Implemented

Even changing ports to 6000 and 6001 respectively does not works.

Can Anybody help??

Try Changing the ports with 9000 and 9001 respectively and give it a shot.


Thanks for contibuting …but it’s not going either with said solution.


HI Puneet

Have you fixed your problem yet? Are you seeing this error from your workflow configurator or the wmAdmin when setting up your servlet?
