Thanks Phil your suggestion put me on the right track. Instead of
running two daemons at the same time, I modified init.d script in
order to detect start failure and - if it happens - try to start
alternate daemon/config (without management SQL server). With a bit of
scripting for check & recovery on the management server I should be on
