Hello all,

I am receiving the following exception in the catalina.out when I attempt to start the virtualization server.  It was working before and I didn't make and configuration changes to the environment since then.

This happened to me once before and the only way I was able to work around it was a total database wipe and reinstall of Alfresco.  Unfortunately, since this Alfresco instance contains production data, I can't do the same thing again.

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.
