Subject: Problem of "The CA server's beacon address list was empty after initialization"

Hello All,
When I install EPICS 3.14.11 on RHEL4.8 for VxWorks6.8/vxWorks-ppc604_long, then create an example app, and load it to MVME5100, it will display "The CA server's beacon address list was empty after initialization?" like this:
 
-> </home/wanglin/vx6_8_ep11App/iocBoot/iocexample/st.cmd
## Example vxWorks startup file
cd "/home/wanglin/vx6_8_ep11App"
value = 0 = 0x0
ld < bin/vxWorks-ppc604_long/example.munch
value = 40806864 = 0x26ea9d0
dbLoadDatabase "dbd/example.dbd"
value = 0 = 0x0
example_registerRecordDeviceDriver pdbbase
value = 0 = 0x0
dbLoadTemplate "db/user.substitutions"
value = 0 = 0x0
dbLoadRecords "db/dbSubExample.db", "user=wanglin"
value = 0 = 0x0
iocInit
Starting iocInit

iocRun: All initialization complete
value = 0 = 0x0
-> The CA server's beacon address list was empty after initialization?
 
I do not change any environment variables, and this problem do not happen to me for EPICS 3.14.12.1. It seems that the Bug #541358 mentioned before was fixed on EPICS 3.14.11, and the file iocinf.cpp and online_notify.c of 3.14.11 and 3.14.12.1 are the same.
 
So, what probably results in this problem? And how can I solve it?
 
Thanks,
Lin Wang
