Nexus fails to start with message 'Error occurred during initialization of VM'

Symptoms

TAC fails to start and you cannot see any information in the TAC Tomcat log. When you try to manually start Nexus using the script, you get the following error:

Error occurred during initialization of VM
java/lang/NoClassDefFoundError: java/lang/Object

 

Diagnosis

When executing the Java command on the machine hosting TAC, the same error is observed. The issue is isolated to the Java configuration on the TAC machine.

 

Solution

Reinstalling JDK on the machine that is hosting TAC fixes the issue.
