We are using SunOne App Server 7.0 on Solaris 9.x.
While starting the server instance, we are encountering following problem
WARNING: CORE3283: stderr: sm_ftok failed calling stat: No such file or directory
WARNING: CORE3283: stderr: 8752: CSemCounter failed to get key with sm_ftok.
Startup process doesn't go ahead of this point. Please help
The message you see seem to indicate a problem while starting logging threads. You might want to check if you have some appserver processes running. If you do kill them and try to restart your appserver instance.
You can also check if you have log rotation set incorrectly or some third party logging enabled(i.e log4j) that might prevent appserver startup.
