ResolutionThis issue is currently being investigated by the Engineering team in order to resolve it in a future release.
If you are experiencing this issue, contact RSA Customer Support and quote this article number for further assistance.
WorkaroundExecute the following command once you initiate an update:

puppet agent -t

The above command should restart any stopped services such as rabbitmq-server or rsa-sms.
If issues persist then further troubleshooting will need to be performed on the rabbitmq-server service.
NotesThe following line in /etc/init/jettysrv.conf shows the dependencies of jettysrv:

if [[ `/sbin/service rabbitmq-server status | grep -i 'running_applications'` && `/sbin/service tokumx status | grep -i 'run'` ]] && ! [[ `/sbin/service rsa-sms status | grep -i -E 'not[[:space:]]+run'` ]]

The dependencies are:
  • rabbitmq-server
  • tokumx
  • rsa-sms
