Lawson Security: Data area has been suspended

, ,


When I try to access or add a rule to a security class in the Lawson Security Administrator (LSA), I get the error message, “Data area has been suspended”. How do I resolve this issue?



This error usually occurs after running dbreorg without stopping your LSF WebSphere Application Server prior to the execution of dbreorg. This is a simple fix.


Basic steps to resolve this issue:

  1. First, we need to stop WebSphere
  2. Next, stop LSF
  3. From here, you must make sure that there are no java processes running. This is important so you won’t get the same error message again.
  4. After confirming, then you can re-start LSF
  5. Finally, start WebSphere again. You shouldn’t get the error message anymore.
