Error In /var/adm/messages - IMTA-W-BADCONFIG, Attempt To Map New Configuration Failed

(Doc ID 2174013.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 22, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Messaging Server - Version 8.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Using:  Oracle Communications Messaging Server 64bit (built Jun 15 2016) 64bit (built 21:00:45, Jun 15 2016)
Using /opt/sun/comms/messaging64/config/config.xml (not compiled)

When deploying new systems using Messaging Server and Unified Config, the first time it starts, we see the following errors in the /var/adm/messages file:

We have seen this error on nearly (maybe every) system we have deployed.

After restarting the MTA, it never happens again.

We are running "not compiled", so it is not like there could be a compiled config file being changed.  We have also ruled out a sequence-of-events problem.

It never happens again after restart -- unless everything is wiped out and a completely new install is performed.


Brand new installation is performed.
