Crash after applying 9.0.1 FP4

Daniel Nashed  7 July 2015 04:33:52
I am working with IBM support since I installed FP4 directly after it shipped.
After installing FP4 I got a crash on startup. I first thought this is special to my environment and IBM support was blaming my unsupported CentOS 6.5 environment.

But it turned out that there was already a SPR # LKIM9UPQBL which has been already escalated to development. So it sounded like a more general issue that can happen in some configurations.

The bug has been reproduced on one of my customers with SLES 11 SP3 and I heard that other partners have been running into this also in their test environments.

I am waiting for more information from IBM. If you are planning to upgrade to FP4 you should wait until we get more details.

Here is an example call-stack that hopefully makes it into Google soon to have public information available for this call-stack.

Update: The problem is a regression. IBM did not add the server binary to the install kits.
Unix and Windows is affected even it might not cause a crash in every server configuration.
In my case the crash happened directly after server start. But to be sure you should install the IF or make sure you are installting the updated FP4 installer.

For more details check this technote -->

Oops, already moved all relevant servers to FP4, with no issues so far. These are Windows servers however, so I guess this is a un*x issue...

On a VM I had an issue with upgrading an 9.0.1 FP3 IF4 Client and Domino. Both needed to be reinstalled after a downgrade to FP3 an subsequent FP4 install. Key executables like nservice.exe and others were missing.

Happily, after a reinstall of base 9.0.1 and FP4 upgrade everything runs great!

It's a confirmed but and I got a test-fix that resolved the issue.

IBM is working on a technote and on a IF.

I will update my post as soon I have more information.

I'm getting no issues with RHEL 6.6 on 9.0.1FP4 for mail servers, however we don't use SSO.
