When upgrading to AIX 7.2.3.1, dsmserv stops working with a crash in GSKit.

The culprit appears to be the upgrade of bos.rte.odm at the 7.2.3.0 level.

So keep bos.rte.odm 7.2.2.15. It works.

Got the following from a co-worker.
This may be more information that you want to know.

AIX 7.2.3 breaks GSKit8, up through GP29 (8.0.50.89).

This affects TSP/Spectrum Protect, Content Manager, Tivoli Directory Server, Websphere, DB2, Informix, IBM HTTP Server, etc.

Before reboot, everything works still, which implies the change is in the kernel.

We found it on TSM, and AIX 7200-03-01-1838, and Spectrum Protect server 8.1.6.0.


Application crash and DBX follow below.
