IDM 4.01, Linux OS, running MSSQL DB

We are getting the following error in one of our environments:

17:02:17,060 INFO [STDOUT] INFO [RBPM] [com.novell.srvprv.impl.vdata.definition.VirtualDat aDefinition:buildQueryDefinitionCache] Directory Abstraction Query Definitions have

at com.novell.srvprv.impl.vdata.model.VirtualDataMode l.newFormQuery(VirtualDataModel.java:679)

I know that it is referencing a query in my DAL being called by my workflow but I'm not sure what this error indicates. We do not see this error in other logs where the query is being used so we are trying to identify what is different with this environment.

Any suggestions or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
