PAMSC Admin successfully installed PAMSC Build v126.96.36.1999 on AIX 6.1.
Then tried to import the rules from the previous install using /opt/CA/PAMSC/bin/selang -l -f /development_bkp/pamsc/File3toimport -o /development_bkp/pamsc/File3toimport.log,
The import was successful with no error in the log file /development_bkp/pamsc/File3toimport.log, the import file had about 9,000 lines.
Then tried to start PAMSC and it is failing:

Resolved Issue by:
1.- redudcing the number of the rules by 10% ~500 rules less.
2.- in seos.ini modified the following parameters:
; This token defines the maximum number of file rules allowed in the database
; note that putting very large number may cause strange behavior
; on different platforms
; Valid Values: > 4095 (must be bigger then 4095)
; Default Value: 4096
max_regular_file_rules = 20000
; This token defines the maximum number of generic file rules allowed in the database.
; Setting a very large number can decrease the system throughput.
; Default Value: 256
max_generic_file_rules = 2048
3.- restarted and the issue is resolved.
