This message does not always indicate problem. If you dont see any issues with authentication then we can ignore it.

Also I would suggest you to apply patch 5

If you see messages that says CSTacacs is being re-started.. thats normal. Lots of scheduled activity result in re-starts - replication, backup, admin ui etc...

If csmon keeps finding CSTacacs isnt running and you arent seeing exceptions and crashes - it means something is causing the process to quietly exit (aka die)

If you set logging detail to max and look in the cstacacs service log you might find a clue. Look for service start messages then immediately before that you probably see shutdown messages - if it was a controlled shutdown..
