Dear Ivy Team,

I'm facing a strange issue that never happened before: the ivy server cannot be started anymore. It refers to a so-called "Page Archive Engine Manager". Nothing special has been changed in the configuration since the last successful run.

Please see the details in the extracted log below.

I would like to know what exactly this "Page Archive Engine Manager" is and how I can eliminate the error that it caused.

Thank you.

Did you check the running processes of that host? This error could be an indicator that another engine is running on the same host...

I didn't see any suspicious processes running when the error happened yesterday, even a full restart could not solve the problem. However, it started to work this morning for some reason. Thank you for your quick response and the possible explanation, Reguel.

Is there an Rich Client still running when you try to start the server? If yes close the Rich Client and try again. Otherwise you may have two PMV's with the same name path. Name path means applicationName/pmName$pmvNumber. E.g. myApplication/myProject$1. Can you check your system database if this is the case?

The Q&A is normally not he place to get support for such special cases. If you need help in such situations write to

The problem didn't happen in the last two weeks. The exception is not triggered anymore, I could not reproduce this. Thank you for the responses.
