Today I got a call that a IBM HTTP Server stopped working after a reboot. The service starts and ends again after some seconds. In the error_log of IBM HTTP we found following messages:

Good source found was:

In our case the Stashfile was configured with a expiration date. So just open the keyfile, change password and check that the option expiration of stash is deactivated.
