Either way the /var/opt/SUNWsymon/cfg/trap-schedule.dat file is corrupted, and Solaris is likely restarting the sunmctrap service over and over and over...
Receiving many ID xxxxxx daemon.alert events every hour. The message is:
[ID xxxxxx daemon.alert] syslog Nov 10 14:00:10 trap syntax error in trap-schedule.dat(200) at token '???'
followed immediately (same timestamp) with:
[ID yyyyyy daemon.alert] syslog Nov 10 14:00:10 trap *** aborting execution ***
I have also read that patching SMC has caused problems for some peopleIn general, patches fix more problems than they create: I recommend you install the latest set. But your current trap-schedule.dat problem isn't due to a problem that a patch would fix, just a config file that's formatted incorrectly.
so I don't really want to try that until I get some feedback.
