   SUSE Recommended Update: Recommended update for sapconf

Announcement ID:    SUSE-RU-2018:2939-1
Rating:             moderate
References:         #1093843 #1093844 #1096498 #1099101 
Affected Products:
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Server Applications 15

   An update that has four recommended fixes can now be


   This update for sapconf provides the following fixes:

   - Sapconf should not change the system settings for kernel.sem, so remove
     the variables SEM* from it. (bsc#1099101)
   - Correct the SAP Note references in the man pages and in the sysconfig
     file of the sapconf package. (bsc#1096498)
   - Avoid stopping or disabling uuidd.socket in sapconf as it is mandatory
     for every SAP application running. (bsc#1093843)
   - Remove hardcoded default value for VSZ_TMPFS_PERCENT. This allows an
     admin to exclude VSZ_TMPFS settings from the sysconfig file, so the
     current system value will remain untouched. This value only got used in
     the previous version, if the variable VSZ_TMPFS_PERCENT was removed from
     the sapconf configuration file /etc/sysconfig/sapconf. If the value of
     the variable was only changed (increased or decreased) in the sapconf
     configuration file everything works fine. (bsc#1093844)
   - Remove the no longer needed sysconfig file.
   - Remove the pagecache references from the sysconfig file.
