IssueStarting sdadmind
While starting the ACE/Server, all services/daemons keep running except sdadmind.
Remote Administration cannot connect to administration database.
CauseThe certificate files have become corrupted somehow (e.g., the ACE/Server machine crashed when the file was being accessed).
Resolution1. Recopy the server.cer, server.key, and sdti.cer files from the license diskette to the ACEDATA
    2. Stop and restart the ACE/Server.

Note: Do not replace the license.rec file since it contains the encryption key needed to access the database

If this solution did not work see Remote Adminstration no longer works after rebooting UNIX ACE/Server
