Cause

AIX operating system was upgraded to the most recent patch level such as AIX 6100-09-02-1412 and AIX 7100-03-01-1341. This is causing the Spectrum server not to start.  The java server wrapper version that Spectrum is shipped with, version 3.5.7, is not working with recent AIX patch levels.

Resolution

UPDATED: February 13, 2015
The "Tanuki Wrapper Patch" CDQ 9.0 S22, CDQ 8.0 S39, and CDQ 7.0 S58 fixes this issue. The patches and patch release notes can be found on the G1 support site.
