I get this Error "Failed to start any of the servants." when starting Tectia server on RHEL. But the same configuration works in a different RHEL Tectia server.
What can be wrong?

On Redhat Linux machines in some cases the crypticore libraries fail to load causing the error.
Server_start_failed, Error: Generic error, "Failed to start any of the servants."
On certain Red Hat hosts the servants crash while trying to initialize the crypticore DLLs. It only happens on some RHEL machines when they are using SMP kernels. If the machine is rebooted to a non-SMP kernel, everything will work fine.
Other machines running an identical version of RHEL may not have the problem even if they are using the SMP kernel. Even when performing two default installs from the same installation media, one host may exhibit the problem while the other does not.
We have investigated this and it it does NOT seem to be an issue with the crypticore DLLs.
This seems to be an issue that only affects certain hardware + software configurations. In our testing, SuSE and Ubuntu installations on the same host machines (also running SMP kernels) do not exhibit this issue.
This issue has only been seen on certain 32 bit RHEL hosts. It only occurs with the optimized crypticore DLLs.
The optimized Crypticore libraries are not included in Solaris or 64-bit Linux packages, as 64-bit Linux and Solaris x86_64 use the generic crypticore plugins that do not cause this problem.
