Symptoms

When an unexpected error is received during communication between apd, apmd, and mcpd, it throws an exception.

Impact

The system cores without an error code indicating the reason. This hampers finding the actual cause for the error.

Conditions

Rarely reproducible, failed communication between apd, apmd, and mcpd.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

Now, when an error occurs, the system prints an error code in HEX, which facilitates finding the reason for the error.
