Oracle iPlanet Web Server7.0 on Solaris 11 Installed and run with Root user Will Not Start Properly When Configured With Custom NSAPI Plug-in
Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017
Applies to:Oracle iPlanet Web Server - Version 7.0 and later
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
iPlanet Web Server plugin-in fails to start properly if the Web Server is installed and running as the root user, but it works fine if the Web Server is run as non-root user.
If the plugin contains a call to systhread_start() the call will fail and the plugin won't start.
The plugin-in below returns the value of "systhread_start()" NSAPI function and as the non-root user it works.
