When removing a nested Address List or Port List, the pccd process might crash.


pccd crashes with core, restarts, and correctly compiles the new configuration. There is a resulting, small delay in applying the new configuration due to the pccd restart.


This might occur under the following conditions: -- Removing a nested Address List or Port List using a tmsh transaction with an incorrect tmsh command order consistently results in this crash. -- A high availability (HA) setup with config-sync enabled and there are intermittent problems with HA-connections, or out-of-memory system state, might intermittently result in this crash.


-- If the crash occurs as a result of incorrect tmsh commands in a transaction, reorder commands to the parent list is modified or deleted before deleting the nested list. -- If the crash is an intermittent issue due to problems with HA-connections, or an out-of-memory system state, no action is necessary; pccd correctly compiles new configuration after it restarts.

Fix Information

pccd no longer crashes under these conditions, and correctly compiles the new configuration.
