Last Modified: May 29, 2024

Known Affected Versions:
11.5.3, 11.6.0, 12.0.0, 12.0.0 HF1, 12.1.0 HF1, 12.0.0 HF2, 12.1.0 HF2, 12.0.0 HF3, 12.0.0 HF4, 12.1.1 HF1, 12.1.1 HF2, 12.1.2 HF1, 12.1.2 HF2

Fixed In:

Opened: May 12, 2015

Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

During a small window of opportunity, mcpd can core if it is told to restart. This often occurs when another component has failed.

Impact

An mcpd core file is generated during shutdown, and it may initially appear as if mcpd coring was the cause of the restart.

Conditions

This issue generally occurs when another component has a problem which then initiates an mcpd restart.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

Ensured that connections are not deleted twice when shutting down, so mcpd no longer cores.
