HI HomerJ,

What I know about this issue is that it is a recognized issue from HP R&D and the following exists regarding this from HP:

It is a known issue that has arisen since the installation of patch 6 only. It is verified not to exists in prior patches, so the recommendation at this point would be to uninstall this patch and go batch to a previous patch (patch 5 or lower) to not have the error occur.

Thanks for the response. I guess we will roll back to a previous patch level.
