Goal

 When starting the Environment Management Framework Agent (the EMF Agent) for use with the Change Assistant, to apply an update, see that the EMF Agent is giving off this message:

 

EMF_CATEGORY - Error while connecting to server - retrying attempt <number>

EMF_CATEGORY - Error while connecting to server - retrying attempt <number +1>

EMF_CATEGORY - Error while connecting to server - retrying attempt <number +2>

 

The Agent does not appear to be starting successfully.  The message continues indefinitely, incrementing the attempt number.
