Teradata Initiator Service failed with 4 exit code

Hello - having a problem starting TDE-V (TD13, 1TB).

In my SLES guest I get the following errors when attempting to start TD with the "/etc/init.d/tpa start" command:

# /etc/init.d/tpa start
# Teradata Initiator Service starting...
INFO:
recond[10684]: CRITICAL: TdatTools 29003 #nodeDiscovery(): blli_get_node_list(): g->connectedNodes: -1, errno: 2
Teradata Initiator Service failed with 4 exit code
#

Seems to be choking at a node discovery phase. Has anyone else come across this error? I have tried shutting-down and restarting VMware. Any help much appreciated. Thanks.

After giving the command, wait a minute or so and give the same command again. Keep trying. After a few trails (minutes), the database will be started. Looks weird, but works :- )
