Local FixÏ New Fix Needed
SSPCM crashes after signon on RedHat Linux. Customer installed SSP 220.127.116.11 on RedHat Linux and attempted to signon to the SSPCM GUI interface. Within minutes of logging in, the GUI became unresponsive because the SSPCM process was gone. Nothing in the logs showed what had happened. By turning on a truss trace for the SSPCM process, it was determined that the last thing that happened was a SIGPIPE interruption and the process died. Further investigation revealed that this was a problem with the IBM JRE that is shipped with the product, and is discussed in IBM APAR IV02379: "JAVA EXITS SILENTLY AND UNEXPECTEDLY ON LINUX DUE TO SIGPIPE". The Customer was running on RedHat Linux at the 2.6.18-194.11.1.el5 level.
Updated the JRE that is shipped on the Linux platform to the IBM SR10 FP1 level, which contains the fix for the SIGPIPE problem on Linux.
