Error Initializing:Error connecting to Local Connector Service


Symptom


Upon launching the HubStor Connector Service UI (HCS), the error below is shown: 



Cause


This issue occurs when the HubStor Connector Service is not running.  The service is configured by default to have a delayed start.  So if the server is freshly rebooted and the HCS UI is launched prior to the service fully initializing, this error could occur.  

Solution


Confirm the service is fully started and relaunch the UI.  
If the service is started, close the UI, restart the service, then launch the UI.
