Failed to start core services on Unix machine in Sagent Data Flow

Applicable for Unix (AIX, Solaris) environment only.

Possible Root Cause

  1. All processes (MW-RPC Server, DFS Manager, DFS, REGSS, Watchdog) might not be killed properly.
  2. Files required by the main win and repository process are locked.


  1. Stop all the process (MW-RPC, DFS Manager, DFS, REGSS, Watchdog)
  2. Check with pid they should be clear kill pid if required explicitly
  3. Remove all files from /tmp (ls -lrt |grep Mw_xx , ls -lrt reg*)
  4. Start Sagent dataflow service.
