There may be two issues if I'm reading this correctly and it may help to clarify. I have the issue described by this topic - that is my core hybrid runs and DCErouter is running, but the orbiter does not launch.
I mentioned it in a discusson of another issue and recieved some advice here:http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=8705.msg59255#msg59255
The issue that DCErouter won't start may be a different issue as described in another thread:http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=8720
If the dcerouter doesn't start, then it may be certain that the orbiter can't start, but the reverse is not true. A core can be running as a core, which means that dcerouter is running. And the core may or may not be running an orbiter; a core running an orbiter makes it a hybrid.
If it helps, I don't have any old locks in /usr/pluto/locks (they are all timestamped after a reboot earlier today) and have not experienced any crashes since I installed from scratch a few days ago on the 24th of August.
I checked several logs and didn't find anything helpful
madmin@dcerouter:/var/log/pluto$ less DCERouter.log
madmin@dcerouter:/var/log/pluto$ less LaunchManager.log
madmin@dcerouter:/var/log/pluto$ tail LaunchManager.progress.log
Thanks and appreciate any insights,
