Siebel server not starting on Linux systems and returning lots of SBL-GEN-00127 errors
Last updated on JULY 20, 2016
Applies to:Siebel CRM - Version 22.214.171.124  and later
You are running a Siebel version 126.96.36.199 or above on a Linux 64-bit or 32-bit system.
During server startup you will see lots of errors like this in the enterprise log file:
ServerLog ProcessExit 1 0000fa204f977fee:0 2012-04-24 16:13:00 WfProcMgr 1865 SBL-GEN-00127 Process 1865 exited with error -
This occurs for almost all components and they are shown as unavailable in the srvrmgr.
Core dumps are generated with the following file information:
$ file core.4681
core.4681: ELF 64-bit LSB core file AMD x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), SVR4-style, from 'siebmtshw'
Note the ELF 64-bit signature. Since all siebel binaries are 32-bit, it is clear that this core is caused by the operating system shell, which runs as 64-bit on a 64-bit platform.
The same behavior has also been observed for 32-bit operating systems.
Another symptom is the following error generated when gdb is invoked:
gdb siebmtshw core.4681
A message similar to the below is displayed (File format not recognized):
"/home/siebel/siebsrvr/bin/siebmtshw": not in executable format: File format not recognized
