Last updated on MARCH 10, 2021

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 11.4 to 11.4 [Release 11.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


 Service svc:/network/firewall/pflog:default is going into maintenance with the following error :

       Checking if capture link exists..
       /usr/sbin/dladm: link pflog0 is not valid: permission denied
       Creating a temporary capture link..
       dladm create-cap -t pflog0
       dladm: cap creation failed: permission denied
       [ 2020 Dec 21 14:46:22 Method "start" exited with status 95. ]


The problem occurs after updating from Solaris 11.3 to Solaris 11.4.

    Check the umask setting. If it shows something other than '022' this is causing the problem.

         # svccfg -s svc:/system/environment:init listprop umask/umask
         umask/umask astring 022
