Issue/Introduction

When running the RemoteEDMIndexer on a RHEL server you encounter inconsistent results, with the indexer failing with a SIGSEGV error once in every 4-6 attempts.

 

Cause

The instability is caused by the command being called by default through the install4J wrapper.

Environment

Release : 15.x

Component : RemoteEDMIndexer, Install4j

Resolution

This will be fixed in a future version.

Workarounds:

1. Use a Windows machine for remote indexing

2. On Linux, the workaround is to run the indexer via the JRE directly instead of via the default wrapper. A command for example with default paths for 15.5 is shown below. Double check paths for your environment and for correct line breaks after copy/paste:
