When attempting to start an RdbThinServer from the Rdb Thin Control command line interface, the server does not start:

$ java -jar rdb$jdbc_home:rdbthincontrol.jar -cfg rdb$jdbc_home:rdbjdbccfg.xml
rdbthincontrol> start server prodsrv
Starting server ...
..Unable to start Server

The attempt to create the thin server process for prodsrv creates a log file in rdb$jdbc_log.
