... 6 hours later, here's my documented solution:

When this started:
- After configuring a second server with Kanaka, the first server would not run Kanaka anymore after a reboot.

The problem:
- Executing “rcmicrofocus-kanakaengined start” starts the engine but it stops after a few seconds as verified with “rcmicrofocus-kanakaengined status”.


The Log:
- The “/var/opt/microfocus/kanaka/engine/log/microfocus-kanakaengined.log” log file shows the following error:

CCSecurityContextPoolService - Detected either updated credentials or an empty security context pool. Attempting to authenticate credentials and fill the pool...
01 2017-08-22 11:33:14 -14400 3 8003 8908 7f8873fff700 CCSecurityContextPoolService - Called FillPool(), Result = 185.
01 2017-08-22 11:33:14 -14400 2 0001 8908 7f887a674700 ML: Finished waiting for the Security Context Pool to be filled, Result = 326, bOK = 0.
01 2017-08-22 11:33:14 -14400 1 0001 8908 7f887a674700 ML: Failed to initialize 1 or more components and/or services. Engine is switching to stop-pending state.


The Solution:

- Execute “rcmicrofocus-kanakaengined proxy-reset” and fill the prompts. Then start the Kanaka Engine with “rcmicrofocus-kanakaengined start”, after a minute check if it is still up with “rcmicrofocus-kanakaengined status”.
