IV66684: /ETC/RC.TCPIP BECOMES EMPTY BY CHRCTCP COMMAND IF /TMP IS FULL APPLIES TO AIX 7100-03
A fix is available
Closed as program error.
chrctcp command is used by smit to modify /etc/rc.tcpip file. To modify /etc/rc.tcpip, chrctcp uses /tmp directory to store a temporary file which will have the modified rc.tcpip content. If /tmp file system is full, it fails to write new contents into the temporary file, and blindly replace /etc/rc.tcpip with the empty or partial entries.
Keep /tmp file system not being full
rc.tcpip can get corrupted while updating, if /tmp has no free space.
The code of chrctcp is changed to fix this issue. It will check if /tmp is full before updating rc.tcpip.
