At the same time of core file generation, following lines appear in file /opt/CA/DSM/logs/TRC_AMAGENT_*.log :

161117-06:55:39.2222680L|7143542|00000001|amagent   |                |                    |000000|ERROR  | CFptr::-> invalid ptr

Cause:

This problem occurs if parameter itrm/agent/solutions/uam/prio_level  in comstore has been changed from default value (which is 0).

 

Example :

Following command returns the configured value :

ccnfcmda -cmd GetParameterValue -ps itrm/agent/solutions/uam -pn prio_level

In this example 19 has been configured. This could cause a crash of amagent on AIX.

 

 

 

Resolution:

The resolution is to set the value prio_level to 0 on AIX machine :

 

ccnfcmda -cmd SetParameterValue -ps itrm/agent/solutions/uam -pn prio_level -v 0
