Thank you George,

Ran the commands you suggested, still no progress, It keeps asking if 
the backend is running and if I have the ip addresses configured correctly?
The box is a combo FE/BE and I am using as the IP address for 
the backend as well as the frontend. Is there any way to confirm what 
the backend is doing (nor doing)?

Thanks Again
Scott Martin
