Description:

Hardening a TIM/MTP server could lead to unpredictable behavior.

 

Solution:

Although hardening the OS should be an automatic process without operational impact, this may not be the case.

 

As an example, hardening may introduce control characters to certain configuration files, and prevent the normal operation.


E.g. If httpd.conf is impacted, then use an utility like dos2unix to eliminate the control characters and resolve the issue.
