With latest scom version 1807, we are able to see crontab issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • with updated version of scom agent on cross platform machines unix/linux agents we have started seeing crontab which creates lot and lots of temp files filling the space on the server.

    however in some blogs we have seen this is an bug in current version and would be rectified in coming release.

    what was the idea behind introducing this crontab on the server. can some one elaborate on this.

  • We had the same issue rolling out agents to Red Hat Linux using SCOM 2016 with UR6 applied. The problem seemed to be just with servers running agent version 1.6.2-342.

    Updating to UR7 and agent version 1.6.2-343 fixed the temp file creation issue but the cron entry still occurs.

    Hope this helps.
