Bug 43269

GemStone/S 64 Bit

3.1.0.6, 3.1.0.5, 3.1.0.4, 3.1.0.3, 3.1.0.2, 3.1.0.1, 3.1, 3.0.1, 3.0

SPC Monitor startup failures on ftok( )

On AIX, startstone will occasionally fail due to a problem with the startup
of the shrpcmonitor process.  The SHRPCMON log will contain the following
error message:

GemStone could not retrieve the segment key using ftok(). path = /opt/gemstone/locks/<lockname>
prodid = 0, error = .
[SpcMon trace]: ... cache creation failed ...

Workaround

A subsequent startstone will usually work.
