PS C:\Users\Administrator> Add-TtmCdTopologyType -Id StaginAndLive -Name "Staging and Live" -EnvironmentPurposes "Staging,live" Add-TtmCdTopologyType : Error occurred while attempting to communicate with Topology Manager Service at 'http://localhost:83/ttm201501'.

  • Check the logs. Commented May 9, 2016 at 11:02
  • Hi Mukesh , Thanks for your reply. I am not able to browse this URL. It says "localhost refused to connect" Commented May 9, 2016 at 11:18
  • I also note the inconsistent naming StaginAndLive (instead of StagingAndLive), "Staging,live" no capital L for live - could these be of any impact? Commented May 9, 2016 at 11:20
  • Ok , if you are not able to browse then that's the issue, please see tridion.stackexchange.com/q/14259/1449 , you need to get this working for adding TopologyType etc
