Actually if it's a real error it's frequently caused by that. If you're
running clients it's usually the sync site isn't in the CellServDB on the
client. Simple answer is look at udebug output. 
For kaserver, udebug (serverhost) 7004
    ptserver,                     7002
    vlserver,                     7003
