    As per the logs arrecond.log there was an error as:

    <ERROR   > <TID: 0000004204> /* Wed Mar 06 2019 13:48:31.7240 */ Exception in getServerGroupState (ARERR[8760] Cannot establish a network connection to the AR System Plug-In server
    <ERROR   > <TID: 0000004204> /* Wed Mar 06 2019 13:48:31.7240 */     <ARSERVER>:<PORT>)

    1. Checked the "RE:Modify Configuration" form there was no data even when the ar.cfg was configured correctly.

    2. Checking the Task manager the arplugin.exe process was not running then checking we found msvcr71.dll  was missing, after adding the file in system.32 and restart AR Server the service start running and the reconciliation worked fine again as expected.
