After Spectrum OneClick Integration with SpectroSERVER, the SpectroSERVER does not startup

After integrating VNA 3.74 with OneClick and modeling devices using SDN Manager, the Secondary SpectroSERVER will fail and no longer startup after Online backup.

If the Primary SpectroSERVER is stopped it will no longer startup and you must restore a SSDB before the VNA integration in order to start the SpectroSERVER.

During startup you will see lines in the VNM.OUT like this:



Oct 10 22:06:22 : /opt/spectrum/SS/SpectroSERVER

     is now ready on port 0xbeef...


mprotect failed, errno=12

... (5883 times) ...

mprotect failed, errno=12

? mts: mts_mmap_block::Vfree_memory failed to unmap addr 0x7f858ea5b000 len 540672



If you change the MTS executable to Non_MTS this will cause a proper crash that looks like

Release : 10.3

Component : Spectrum Core / SpectroSERVER


On startup the IH (inference handler) for Extended Fault Domain Manager utilizes to many resources that cause the SpectroSERVER to crash or error out (with MTS) when VNA is installed because many more fault domains are added.


Please request Spectrum_10.03.02.PTF_10.3.238a from Support

This fix was also added to 10.4.1 and subsequent releases.

Additional Information

To enable No_MTS on the SpectroSERVER 

1. Stop the affected SpectroSERVER and wait for it to shutdown completely.

2. rename SpectroSERVER executable to SpectroSERVER_bak in $SPECROOT/SS

3. copy SpectroSERVER_noMTS from $SPECROOT/SS/support to $SPECROOT/SS

4. rename SpectroSERVER_noMTS to SpectroSERVER

5. Make sure SpectroSERVER has the same permissions as the previous SpectroSERVER_bak file.

6. Start the SpectroSERVER
