E1: OS: TAM Semaphore Error (TAMInitSharedMemory/CreateSemaphore) Access Denied

(Doc ID 647119.1)

Last updated on MAY 30, 2017

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools - Version 8.97 and Prior and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On the Deployment Server when EnterpriseOne starts, there is a pop up message that reads: 

TAM Semaphore Error (TAMInitSharedMemory/CreateSemaphore) Access is denied. 

The JDE.LOG has an error that matches the error on the screen:  

360/220 MAIN_THREAD                        Tue Nov 29 16:15:04.165002 jdetamsh.c145
TAM Semaphore Error (TAMInitSharedMemory/CreateSemaphore) Access is denied.

360/220 MAIN_THREAD                        Tue Nov 29 16:15:15.822072 Jdb_ctl.c3383
Starting OneWorld

After clicking OK on the popup message, EnterpriseOne starts fine and works with no issue.  If you call UTB (Universal Table Browser), you get the same error with the same message box and entries in the JDE.LOG file.

The Deployment Server is a Windows 2003 with EnterpriseOne 8.11 SP1 / Tools Release 8.95C1.  However, this happens when going back to previous service packs as well.  This issue may also occur in newer releases such as EnterpriseOne 9.0 and Tools Release 8.98.
