The stored process will not start:

# Connecting to watcher ...
Launching watcher ... 29168
Starting ens server ... 29169
Starting store server .... 29170
Checking store server status ..... failed!

The watcher log showed errors such as "process exited abnormally" and "stored failed twice in 600 seconds".

The default log showed stored starting up a couple of times, with the PID being incremented each time.


The /var partition filled up to capacity. The customer corrected the problem with /var and then stopped/started the messaging server, only to find out that the stored process would no longer start.
