Server hangs trying to load DS.

The server utilization goes to 100%.

Load SERVER -NDB and the server comes up fine.

Change

The server was not downed properly.

Cause

DS files were corrupt.  When you down the server improperly, this can cause the DS files to become corrupt.

Fix

Brought the server up with a -NDB and ran DSREPAIR| Advanced Options| Repair Local DS Database| Select Check Local References and Rebuild Operational Schema.  Ran the repair until there were zero errors. The database opens after the repairs are complete.
