BIG-IQ contains a cron job to periodically execute /usr/share/ts/bin/asm_logrotate. This script is not needed on BIG-IQ and when executed results in the following errors logged to /var/log/messages: Apr 12 09:15:01 bigiq-1 notice logrotate: ALERT exited abnormally with  Apr 12 09:15:01 bigiq-1 )
There is no impact to functionality beyond unneeded messages being logged.
This behavior is always present.
The script /usr/share/ts/bin/asm_logrotate does not need to be executed periodically by cron job on a BIG-IQ. To workaround this behavior, that cron job can be disabled. 1. Edit /etc/cron.d/asm_logrotate.cron 2. Comment out (with #) the following line: */5 * * * * root nice -n 19 ionice -c 3 /usr/share/ts/bin/asm_logrotate Note: the line should now look like: #*/5 * * * * root nice -n 19 ionice -c 3 /usr/share/ts/bin/asm_logrotate 3. Save and quit the .cron file
