  • An update that has 6 recommended fixes can now be installed.


    This update for sapconf provides the following fixes:

    - Correct the SAP Note references in the man pages and in the sysconfig
    file. (bsc#1096496)
    - Do not stop or disable uuidd.socket in sapconf as it is mandatory for
    every SAP application running. (bsc#1093843)
    - Remove hardcoded default value for VSZ_TMPFS_PERCENT. This allows an
    admin to exclude VSZ_TMPFS settings from the sysconfig file, so current
    system value will remain untouched. This value only got used in the
    previous version, if the variable VSZ_TMPFS_PERCENT was removed from the
    sapconf configuration file /etc/sysconfig/sapconf. If the value of the
    variable was only changed (increased or decreased) in the sapconf
    configuration file everything works fine. (bsc#1093844)
    - Consolidate all SAP ASE (Sybase) related configuration settings into the
    configuration file /etc/sysconfig/sapnote-1680803. (bsc#1070508)
    - Correct pattern search in /etc/sysconfig/sapnote-1557506 to get updating
    of /etc/sysconfig/sapconf to work. The problem only happens if
    /etc/sysconfig/sapnote-1557506 contains commented variable lines like
    '#PAGECACHE_LIMIT_MB=""' in addition to the uncommented line
    'PAGECACHE_LIMIT_MB="500"'. If only the uncommented lines exist,
    everything works correctly. (bsc#1093315)
    - Remove a misleading deprecation warning in sapconf. (bsc#1098352)
