Symptoms

Two different symptoms may occur:
1) When shutting down the application server domain, the REN process "PSRENSRV" will often not shutdown, and a forced shutdown of the REN process is required. The problem is intermittent.

2) When starting the application server domain, the REN server log immediately starts logging message "[ICE 720647000] Ns_CondWait thread 2057 ignoring pthread_cond_wait error 22".
