Steps to Reproduce

  1. Set up a multinode-Dnode cluster.
  2. Set up a Visual Business Director (VBD) cluster with two nodes.
  3. Restart all nodes.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules. A deadlock can occur when starting multiple VBD nodes concurrently. Two threads compete for a Hazelcast distributed lock when persistence is initialized.


Apply HFix-28668.
