jstart process stops and starts itself a few times when starting NetWeaver


When I start my NetWeaver server through command line, it fails with exit code 2.  The reason is because the jstart process stops and starts itself a few times.  I noticed this behaviour when kicking off the command and then "viewing" the start in sapmmc.

The arguments I am passing into the command line is:

-nr <instance number>

-prot PIPE

-function StartWait 300 0

What happens afterwards is as follows:


process jstart J2EE Server not running

After I see "process jstart J2EE Server not running", I immediately view sapmmc and noticed jstart is stopped.  A few seconds afterwards, jstart starts and stops again and then starts up successfully.

As a result of this behaviour, starting my NetWeaver server via command line is always unsuccessful.  I have to resort to sapmmc.

Any idea on what the problem is?  I hope it's clear what I wrote.
