Description (partial)

The Cisco Sync Agent Service fails to start with the logs indicating the following message: The Axl message could not be delivered.  No Axl server found at the given IP address.

The Cisco Sync Agent Service logs may also indicate the following message in certain instances of this issue: "Bad response: (401Unauthorized". However, please note that on all Cisco Unified Presence 8 and 9 versions this particular error message can also result if the Axl Username/Password entered on the CUP Admin UI > System > CUCM Publisher are not correct. Please ensure that on a given Cisco Unified Presence 8 and 9 version of the server that the configured Axl Username/Password matches the value entered on the corresponding CUCM server.

This issue can occur after a clean install of or an upgrade to any 10.0 version, 10.5.1 and 10.5.1 SU1. The issue is resolved in 10.5.1 SU2.

The issue is caused by special characters in the CUCM server's default UI administrator password. This issue may also be introduced on a healthy deployment if the CUCM server's default UI administrator password is modified to contain special characters.

The following characters have been tested and are known to cause an issue if present in the password: ¬ ¦ £ € % ~ ?
