java bridge server issue

Path Finder

We are having issues with the Java Bridge Server. We are running splunk 4.3.4 as a search head in a windows VM. The server got restarted and the Java Bridge Server has not been able to come up.The following is continuously written out to dbx.log:

2013-05-17 16:05:49.544 main:INFO:Splunkd - Initialized Splunkd REST service service=127.0.0.1:8089 sessionKey=83143deb1f384a402ea7a4d009c5c62e 2013-05-17 16:05:49.544 main:DEBUG:PersistentValueStoreFactory

jbridge.log has this error:

If this error appears in the jbridge.log file, you might have a corrupted persistent store file

To resolve this issue, remove $SPLUNK_DB/persistentstorage/dbx/global, recursively.

then restart the splunk .. it will resolve the issues
