Error when starting instance

Symptoms

When trying to restart an instance the startso command seems to just hang and you see an error similar to this:

    ErrorMsg: AwE-5107 awcomm connection error (7/13/13 12:53 PM)

      Details: 172.99.99.99:2136

      java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused


Cause

This can be caused by having the remove command

  rm

aliased as:

  rm -i

This makes the command interactive asking for confirmation. Since our startup scripts create, then delete a file, it will hang due to the fact that it is waiting for a confirmation for the delete.


Resolution

Remove the alias on the rm command in the user's profile.
