J2EE Engine does not start, not updated....


yesterday we have solve a problem in the config of of our engine. The MaxHeapSize of the dispatcher was to smal for -Xms.

Then the Engine works fine.

Later we must restart the whole system (APAP&JAVA) and i have the same problem in the file.

I started the configtool and fix it in the DB and in the file.

Now we renamed the file and restarted the system. The file should wrote from DB like SAP Note 736557. But it dosn't.

But we have several problems too. If i restart only the java instance no jvm_bootstrap.out, dev_bootstrap, jvm_bootstrap.out or std_bootstrap.out, dev_jcontrol will be written.

They write new only when we restart the whole system.

OS: AIX 5.3


Is someone, who know something about this issue?

here are the trace files from the whole system start...

( please note that the file is not correct, but the entries in the DB are )
