I noticed in /var/log/messsages a process 'cimserver' was logging some interesting messages:
Nov 27 15:33:37 lb-web-standby cimserver: Failed to deliver an indication: Cannot connect to the-hostname-of-the-server-im-current-on:49152. Connection failed. Nov 27 15:33:37 lb-web-standby cimserver: Failed to deliver an indication: Invalid locator: the-hostname-of-the-server-im-current-on:49152
I did a little digging and I was able to find a command reference for cimserver online, but no details as to what task it specifically performs. I know that CIM stands for the Common Information Model in computing, but I don't understand why there is a daemonized task running on our box related to this. What exactly does this process do and why is it giving connection errors in the log?
