The error state:

Fail to connect to the repository. It could be that the server is in the progress of starting. Press Yes, if you want to wait for it to start.

I've waited for hours but seem to seek getting the same error message (see attached image).

If anybody has a clue as to why I'm getting this issue, please let me know.

    Hi Teddy,

    Have you found a soultion to resolve this issue?

    Even we are getting the same error while testing repository connection during installation. If you found the solution, kindly post it.

    What is the message in server log file?  You can find the log from Documentum Server Manager by selecting the docbase and clicking on View Log button.

    Try restating the system and create a new repository.

    Even i also faced the same problem once,after restarting the system it gets resolved for me.

    One problem could be, what we have faced, that the (*nix based) server has more network interface. If you not give the same name to the docbroker's host what the 'hostname' command returns, then this can occur.

    So make sure that the docbroker is listening on the same interface on which you have given the docbroker's hostname. If not, then you need to modify the docbroker startup script (and restart the docbroker) during the installation (content server configuration to be precise).
