    Check for any running or hung dispatcher process by running the command: 
    ps -ef | grep dispatch 

    If nothing is running then check for any process that are occupying the 50004 port. 
    50004 is the default port for Dispatcher service 

    netstat -anop | grep 50004 

    This will show the process pid/name whish is holding the port. 

    Most likely some of the nsh process hold the port. Kill the pids and then try starting the dispatcher service.
