* 2951477 (Tracking ID: 2951467)

SYMPTOM:

infinitely causing stack corruption and panic.

RESOLUTION:

INSTALLING THE PATCH
--------------------
1) Unconfigure AMF
 #/opt/VRTSamf/bin/amfconfig -Uof
 
 This will disable IMF functionality for all agents.
 
2) Stop AMF
 #/etc/init.d/amf stop

3) Uninstall the older version of AMF
 #rpm -e VRTSamf
 
4) Install this AMF Patch
 #rpm -ivh VRTSamf-6.0.001.100-RP1P1_RHEL6.x86_64.rpm


REMOVING THE PATCH

2) Stop AMF
 #/etc/init.d/amf stop

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS
--------------------
Step #1 or #2 of the installation process, can panic the machine if incident 2951467 has already been hit. So, to ensure that AMF does not get loaded after bootup (after panic), set AMF_START=0, in the file /etc/sysconfig/amf before Step #1 of the installation process. If panic is hit, then after bootup follow instructions from step #3 to install the patch.
