How to resolve jstart.EXE "Synchronizing binaries" in the sapmmc?
I've recently installed NetWeaver CE 7.1 SP8 using JSPM, which seemed to go fine with several restarts, accesses to the nwa, etc. After starting application testing restarts began hanging with jstart.EXE indicating "Synchronizing binaries" in the sapmmc. I've tried starting NetWeaver several times, have tried using the command line interfaces to start, have rebooted the machine, and still have the problem. There's nothing in the logs to help; these are the only entries that give any sense of what's going on, but no specific errors that I can see:

How can I resolve this?
