What does the tieserver-start.log file say?
For your convenience, there is a MER tool included with the TIE Server, look at this KB article: McAfee Corporate KB - How to use the Threat Intelligence Exchange Server MER tool for Linux / UNIX KB82850. It will collect all logging in one convenient package. I'm not saying you should post the log output here, but the file may help you to see what's going on.
It said to review /var/McAfee/tieserver/logs/tieserver-start.log; what did that tell you?
If you don't review that log file, you won't know what might be the issue. If you would be so kind as to post the tail of that file, we might be able to work out the problem. Otherwise, you should open a SR with McAfee Support.
