Dolby IMS -> JNIOR Connection Issue

If you experience issues with your Dolby IMS Cinema Server connecting to or executing commands on the JNIOR you may need to follow the procedure below. There are two issues that I have seen.

A Dolby may not even try to connect to a JNIOR when it should.

To determine if this is the issue:

  1. Go to the DCP for the JNIOR
  2. Click on the Console tab
  3. Click ‘Start Session’
  4. Log in when prompted
  5. enter the netstat command
  6. There should be a connection to 9200 with the Dolby Server IP Address for the Remote IP

If there is not then remove the JNIOR device, reboot, and reconnect.

The Dolby is connected but nothing happens on the JNIOR when the dolby sends the command.

When Dolby tries to connect to the JNIOR it may not be able to log in to the JNIOR due to a bad password. The highlighted bytes below are corrupted.

The bytes should represent the password like the this…

The previous images are screenshots for the WireShark application when analyzing a network capture. This capture is included in a JNIOR Support Tool Snapshot.

To determine if this is the issue you should check the protocol.log on the JNIOR

To do that:

  1. Go to the DCP for the JNIOR
  2. Click on the Console tab
  3. Click ‘Start Session’
  4. Log in when prompted
  5. Enter the cat protocol.log command

If you see the failed login then do the following:

  1. Go to the JNIOR Device configuration on the Dolby IMS
  2. Reenter the JNIOR password
  3. Reboot the Dolby IMS

You can now re-test the JNIOR connection to see if this is resolved.

If it is not resolved you can try to analyze the network capture or contact INTEG for additional support.
