Patch Manager fails to start and displays the following error:

Failed to connect to the Application Server

Sorry, we are unable to connect to the Patch Manager Server.
Verify that the connection information for the Patch Manager
Server is correct and the Data Grid Service is started.

This occurs when an antivirus application is blocking Patch Manager from starting properly.


Disable the antivirus application. Refer to How do I uninstall antivirus or antispyware programs?

If the antivirus application is required, verify that the files and directories in Patch Manager Anti Virus Exclusions are excluded.
