This document (7017855) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 Service Pack 1 (SLES 12 SP1)
During the initialization the following error message is seen:
crash: invalid structure member offset:
It fails with kernel versions >= 3.12.57-60.35
[/usr/bin/crash] error trace: 80077b06 => 800ebf28 => 8012d1f6 => 8012d15c
Since this also affects systemtap, systemtap was updated to systemtap-2.5-8.3 to address the problem.
The systemtap update released July 2016 includes the patch to resolve the problem here.
A future crash and systemtap update for SLES12 LTSS (Long Term Service Pack Support) will include the patch as well.
Customers with a Long Term Support Contract can contact SUSE Technical Support to request a PTF (temporary fix).
