Opened: Aug 10, 2015

Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Provisioning restarts the APM daemons. If the system is currently passing traffic, orderly shutdown is disrupted and APMD can crash.

Impact

APMD creates a core file. As provisioning is run by the administrator, the service interruption is intentional. There is no additional impact on users.

Conditions

There must be authentication requests in progress while provisioning is attempted. The new requests recreate objects removed during shutdown which leads to a crash.

Workaround

None needed.

Fix Information

The core file is no longer generated
