IssueStarting the ACE/Server database brokers causes the log maintenance daemon (logmaintthd) to fail.       
$acedir/data directory contains many of the following directories:
drwxrwsr--   2 root     system       512 Jul 28 08:38 logmaintsvc_0728_0838_22474
drwxrwsr--   2 root     system       512 Jul 28 08:38 logmaintsvc_0728_0838_22475
drwxrwsr--   2 root     system       512 Jul 28 08:38 logmaintsvc_0728_0838_22476
drwxrwsr--   2 root     system       512 Jul 28 08:38 logmaintsvc_0728_0838_22477
drwxrwsr--   2 foo      system       512 Jul 28 08:38 logmaintsvc_0728_0838_22478
/var/adm/messages shows the following:
Jul 28 08:40:23 bob ACESERVER: (14001) AUTHENTICATION : logmaintd failed to daemonize (error 9)
ResolutionNote: It is very important that the ACE/Server and database brokers are not running when deleting these directories.

1.  Stop the ACE/Server and database brokers:
    (i.e., aceserver stop && sdconnect shutdown )

2.  Delete all the entries in $acedir/data that start with the following:  logmaintsvc_*
    (i.e.,  rm -R logmaintsvc_* )

3.  Start the database brokers and ACE/Server:
   (i.e.,  sdconnect start && aceserver start )
