Known Issues

Linux patch install failing at end 

If you downloaded the patch shortly after release and are installing to a Linux server you may see the following error on patch install.  If you download the patch currently you will not have this issue.  

/home/rhythmyx/Rhythmyx/Patch/732_20171007/config/deploy.xml:152: /home/rhythmyx/Rhythmyx/Patch/732_20171007/config/rhythmyx.home not found.

You can choose to run the file remove the patch zip files and directory, then rerun with a re-downloaded patch.  Alternatively you can just manually run the two commands that are did not run due to this issue.  

cd {rhythmyx home}/jetty

chmod a+x *.sh

./ --create-startd --create-files

Contrast Module preventing startup if explicitly enabled

We include a jetty module that adds a check on security of Object Serialization.   You can see more information about the vulnerability at the following page . We run this module in development to locate vulnerabilities, as a fail safe you may choose to run this module in production.   This module is set as an optional module in this patch that can be enabled if required.  There is an issue in the current path with the paths declared in the module that have changed.  If you already have this module explicitly enabled or try to enable it ( you will see a file in jetty/base/start.d/contrast.ini ).  In this case startup will fail with the following error

Error occurred during initialization of VM 
agent library failed to init: instrument 
Error opening zip file or JAR manifest missing : ../bin/contrast-rO0/contrast-rO0.jar

If you see this error you can either choose to disable the module by removing the jetty/base/start.d/contrast.ini or you can modify jetty/defaults/contrast.mod and change the two cases of the path prefix "../" to be "../../"  

If you want to enable the module you will need to make the change to the contrast.mod file and run the following command to enable.

./ --add-to-start=contrast

The module file will be corrected in the next patch.
