Caused by: com.orientechnologies.orient.core.exception.OSerializationException: Cannot load database's configuration. The database seems to be corrupted.
Never a good thing when you read that the read, The database seems to be corrupted

Anyhow, it seems this type of issue only related with OrientDB Databases. I've worked with the other noticable DBs out there and I've noticed this issue with various version of OpenIDM. Forgerock are often stating that OrientDB is not supported for production deployments so you shouldn't be running this in PROD anyway

The issue states that another process is already running and because of that, it cannot load the datbase configuration. It certainly worrying that within the openIDM stack trace there the words, The database seems to be corrupted.


Issue starting up OpenIDM

SOLUTION

Kill the java processes. Simply perform a ps -ef, locate the process ID that belongs to OpenIDM is running (you will see the path, 'openidm/bin/*' associated to it), then kill it. by running 'kill -9 1805' (assuming your process ID is 1805)
