Applies to:

Oracle iPlanet Web Server - Version 7.0 to 7.0 [Release 7.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When running the Web Server instance in 64bit mode, and and using the Solaris SCF module, the Admin Server is not able to see the Sun Metaslot token.

The token can be seen in the modutil output: (modutil is located in <server-path>/bin or <server-path>/bin/sparcv9 for 64bit)

# modutil -dbdir . -nocertdb -list

However, the 'Sun Metaslot' token is not seen by the Admin Server:
