Resolution

1- Check in directory "C:\Program Files (x86)\CA\DSM\SD\ASM\DATABASE" if there are a corrupted or very big file *.jrack
 
Example :
Problem was seen with the file  C:\Program Files (x86)\CA\DSM\SD\ASM\DATABASE\7F234CFB-93C2-4AB0-90F4-FF395B62B712.jrack
Its size is 95 527 513 bytes and it contains 789677 lines.
 
 
2- Rename (or delete) the big/corruped file C:\Program Files (x86)\CA\DSM\SD\ASM\DATABASE\<uuid>.jrack as <uuid>.jrack.old
Do the same with file C:\Program Files (x86)\CA\DSM\SD\ASM\DATABASE\<uuid>.appack  (rename as <uuid>.appack.old)
 
3- Start sdgrm_im
caf start sdmgr_im
 
4- And check in TRC_USD_INSTMAN*.log if there are some communication/resolution error for the scalability server with problem.
