The Solaris 11.4 Upgrade and SRU Instructions Recommend Cleaning Up /var/tmp, Which Impacts Ops Center 12.4 (Doc ID 2798947.1)

Last updated on JUNE 14, 2022

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Ops Center - Version 12.4.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Ops Center makes use of several directories in /var/tmp.  The clean up operations suggested in the Solaris 11.4 Upgrade documentation and SRU READMEs can impact it's ability to function.

For the purpose of this document, we will focus on how this procedure can affect the Ops Center listener component.  Other scenarios can be added later, or extrapolated from the content provided here.


For an affected machine, the customer would typically see their Ops Center listener in maintenance mode.


A recent upgrade to Solaris 11.4, where the clean up operations recommended for /var/tmp were implemented.

The customer could also have removed files and directories in /var/tmp independent of an upgrade.
