Why does SBAdmin Web Interface fail to start on AIX?
When I try to install the SBAdmin Web Interface, the webserver fails to start with this error:

Segmentation fault(coredump)


ANSWER


On AIX, if the "ulimit" setting for the number of file descriptors a user process may have open at one time is set to "-1 (unlimited)" and the limit to the number of open file descriptors is not set in the sthttpd.conf file, the webserver will crash.

By adding the following line to the /storix/config/sthttpd.conf file (assuming /storix is the Storix data directory) to resolve the issue:

issue. server.max-fds = 2048
