There are situations when starting up an Audit Vault collector fails with the following (or similar) errors:

[oracle@oratest5-ro]$ avctl start_collector -collname coll_vt01 -srcname VT01
Starting collector...
Error executing command start_collector
Http Communication error: Http Communication error: 500

Other errors may be observed too such as:

Unable to start Audit Vault collector:
Http communication error: A remote host refused an attempted connect operation

The error will be seen when the AV Server is not able to communicate with the agent. The note provides a list of things to check in these situations.
