Hi All,

I've got a client who's been having some problems with his BM3.7
system.
It's been abending and showing the offending module to be
aclcheck.nlm.
Since they're using N2H2, I figured that it was a good time to get
them
completely patched up to current revs. Once I upgraded them, the
server
utilization goes to 100% and stays there, and within an hour or two,
the
server just stops responding on the network.

They've got a Compaq ML-350G2 system WITHOUT using any of the ACPI
modules.
I've spoken with Compaq engineering, and they stated that there's a
TID
(they don't know the #) that states you can't use RAID on a BM
server... I
suggested that maybe they mean NSS volumes? They couldn't tell me for
sure.
FWIW, the cache volumes (3 x 4GB volumes sharing a logical drive with
the
SYS volume on a RAID I array) are traditional.

The server is running NW6.0SP3, along with:

nw6nss3c
purge_nw
nw6rconj2a
nw56up3
tcp607L (null)
bm37sp2
bm37fp3f
your PROXY.CFG file
HP/Compaq CSP 7.00 (HW specific drivers)

So far, the server hasn't abended today, but the high utilization is a

problem.

I've isolated the problem to CSATPXY.NLM. When we unload it, the
utilization goes down, and the server seems to be running OK. I don't
know
if the problem was there before applying these patches, but the server

seemed to be working without too many problems (other than the
frequent
abends!). For the time being, the server is running without the
module
loaded.

Are there any issues (security or otherwise) from not running the
server
with the csatpxy.nlm loaded? I've checked out your BMON.NCF file, and
I
guess I'm just a bit confused by it. Is it better to just use the
STARTBRD.NCF file, and then add a delay, then add an UNLOAD
CSATPXY.NLM
command to the file?

The version of CSATPXY.NLM is v2.10c , Sept 10, 2002. It's labled asBM37SP1_02SEP2002

Thanks in advance,

Mark
