SUBJECT: OmniTouch 8450 Fax Software : "ROOT PARTITION FILLING" WARNING

1.

PROBLEM

Each time OFS services are stopped with the "/opt/ofs/scripts/xmservices" script, 2 core files are
generated under "/opt/ofs/Bin" directory. The "xmservices" script is also used by the "backup-data.sh"
script.

2.

Impacted Versions: R6.0.1.45, R6.0.1.25, R5.6.3.31, R5.6.3.25, R5.6.2

CONSEQUENCE

After a while, in case these cores are not removed, this will fill up the root partition.

3.

SOLUTION

A correction will be available in the next coming version; in the meantime, to avoid a system crash due
to the root partition overloading, it is highly recommended to apply this hot fix (HotFixTT16221).

3.1

Installation of the HotFixTT16221 (available on BPWS) on OFS without HA

Unzip the file "HotfixTT16221.zip" which contains the file "xmdaemon".

To apply the fix, you have to log on Fax Server as root and apply the following commands.

Stop the OFS services
♦ /opt/ofs/scripts/xmservices stop

Save the original “xmdaemon” file
♦ mv /opt/ofs/scripts/xmdaemon /opt/ofs/scripts/xmdaemon.ORI

Remove the old core files
♦ rm –f /opt/ofs/Bin/core.*

Copy the new "xmdaemon" file in the directory "/opt/ofs/scripts/".

Set the correct rights on "xmdaemon" file
♦ chown faxserver:faxserver /opt/ofs/scripts/xmdaemon
♦ chmod 775 /opt/ofs/scripts/xmdaemon

Check that the rights and the size of the "xmdaemon" file are correct
♦ ls –l /opt/ofs/scripts/xmdaemon

The result should be: -rwxrwxr-x 1 faxserver faxserver 2868 Jul 30 15:44 /opt/ofs/scripts/xmdaemon

Restart the OFS services
♦ /opt/ofs/scripts/xmservices start
