    MaxL commands not completing after applying AIX 6.1 TL07 patch

    Robert Armstrong

      We are having a strange issue where MaxL commands are not completing on certain commands (reset, execute calculation, execute aggregation) randomly.


      This past weekend an AIX 6.1 patch, TL07) was applied to all Essbase servers due to an emergency with the system paging , we seem to have the problem on one of the three only (so far).  We are running Essbase, the support matrix shows TL2+ supported, My Oracle Support does not show any knowledge base articles about TL07.


      We are pretty stumped here and have been able to complete the commands from EAS, then kill each of the MaxL scripts so the rest of processing runs from the shell scripts, but we can't continue to do this every day.  We stopped and restarted Essbase yesterday, this appeared to work for a short time, two of the 4 automations we restarted.  Last night, some worked and some hung up on the mentioned commands from the scripts.

      I will open a ticket with Oracle, but hoping someone has some information they can share.
