Fixed In:
14.1.0

Opened: Mar 02, 2018
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

Errors may be sent in system emails once an hour due to a runtime error in the dosl7d_tcpdumps_cleaner which is run in an hourly cron job. Here is an example of such an email: From: root (Cron Daemon) To: root Subject: Cron <root@servername> run-parts /etc/cron.hourly Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8 Auto-Submitted: auto-generated X-Cron-Env: <LANG=en_US.UTF-8> X-Cron-Env: <SHELL=/bin/bash> X-Cron-Env: <PATH=/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin> X-Cron-Env: <MAILTO=root> X-Cron-Env: <HOME=/> X-Cron-Env: <LOGNAME=root> X-Cron-Env: <USER=root> /etc/cron.hourly/dosl7d_tcpdumps_cleaner: Use of uninitialized value $s in division (/) at /etc/cron.hourly/dosl7d_tcpdumps_cleaner line 111.

Impact

- Email messages with errors being sent once an hour. - DoSL7 tcpdump files may not be automatically cleaned if used in the DoS profile.

Conditions

- The administrator configures the BIG-IP system to deliver locally generated email messages, or the administrator checks local emails to root, on the BIG-IP. - The hardware supports RAID, even if RAID is not configured.

Workaround

None

Fix Information

The dosl7d_tcpdumps_cleaner cron job no longer sends error email messages every hour.
