  • Running ps -ef shows hundreds of [ps] <defunct> processes, as well as at least one [radius] <defunct> - also fixed in P2.
  • The following message is seen in the Operations Console UI:

Attention!  The following critical system event occurred: Your deployment is at risk. A backup has not been created successfully in the last 7 days. Log on to the Operations Console, and select "Backup and Restore > Back Up Now" or "Backup and Restore > Schedule Backups".

CauseIt appears that a network problem broke the connection to the Windows File Share during a write operation of the scheduled backup. 

RSA Customer Support reproduced this symptom with RSA Authentication Manager 8.1 patch 2 ( by disabling the Windows Server Network adapter during the write operation. 

However with Authentication Manager, this problem self-healed when the Windows File Share problem was fixed (enabled NIC), while customer reported at Authentication Manager with no patches that it never self-healed. 

The fix in Authentication Manager 8.1 patch 2 is not documented because the customer reported the problem after the release of patch 2 while running Authentication Manager 8.1 base, then reported problem no longer occurred after patch 2 was applied
ResolutionApply Authentication Manager patch 2 ( for Authentication Manager 8.1.0.
