STCLive T&D: Why does the MetroUI UI not come up? Why does the MetroUI show status of Stopped?

Lumos T&D 10.500.
When do a stop and start of the MetroUI processes, the process goes into a stopped state:
=> node app list
    uid      command                             script        forever  pid     id logfile                                  uptime 
[0] hostname /spirent/cots/Node/0.10.38/bin/node tnd-server.js 11141296 4784370    /spirent/metro/logs/MetroUI-hostname.log STOPPED

The /spirent/metro/<version>/MetroUI/logs/metroui-ds.log shows error that socket is in use:
[2017-01-19 11:43:12] [main] [m.d.App:70] [INFO] Starting Metro UI Data Service
[2017-01-19 11:43:16] [main] [m.d.App:80] [ERROR] Error The socket name is already in use.

[2017-01-19 11:43:16] [main] [m.d.App:82] [ERROR] Critical error has occurred. The socket name is already in use.

To start the MetroUI processes properly do the following:
  1. Stop the application:
    cd $METRO_HOME/MetroUI
    node app stop
  2. Using netstat command, check the ports used by MetroUI.  Ports used by MetroUI are 3000, 3001, 3002, 8083.
    netstat -an | grep 3000
    netstat -an | grep 3001
    netstat -an | grep 3002
    netstat -an | grep 8083

    Example of problem:
    => netstat -an | grep 8083
     tcp4       0      0  *.8083                 *.*                    LISTEN
  3. The 8083 port will show it is in use as "LISTEN".  Find the process ID that is using the port with the 'lsof' command:
    => $COTS_PATH/lsof/4.85/lsof -i :8083
     java    11075716 smartsys   68u  IPv4 0xf100050000f5f3b8      0t0  TCP *:8083 (LISTEN)
     lsof. WARNING: /spirent/home/smartsys/.lsof_hostname was updated.
  4. Verify the process is MetroUI process:
    => ps -ef | grep 11075716
     smartsys 11075716        1   0   Jan 13      -  4:20 java -Dalias.list=scout -Dscout.jdbc.driver=undefined -Dscout.jdbc.url=jdbc:informix-sqli://cidc2106:4301/scout:INFORMIXSERVER=metrotcp;IFX_ISOLATION_LEVEL=1;IFX_LOCK_MODE_WAIT=120 -Dscout.jdbc.user=smartsys -Dscout.jdbc.password=01ee9b0c4386c98edd3a40d7a2ecb280 -Dscout.jdbc.max.connections=undefined -Dscout.jdbc.init.scripts= -jar ds/target/ds.jar -port 8083
  5. Kill the process:
    => kill 11075716
  6. Start MetroUI processes as normal:
    =>  cd $METRO_HOME/MetroUI

     => node app list

     => node app start
     info: Started

     => node app list
         uid      command                             script        forever  pid      id logfile                                  uptime
     [0] cidc2106 /spirent/cots/Node/0.10.38/bin/node tnd-server.js 11796642 11075740    /spirent/metro/logs/MetroUI-cidc2106.log 0:0:0:3.693
