Recently we had a power anomoly that dropped an entire VM server, I was able to get all but this one server up. rcndsd status says that its running but its not the case when I look at the logs.
I have included as much info here as I think can help. Please note the server and tree names have been changed to anonomize the data

I appreciate any help you can provide.
