Spectrum processd crashes on startup on Secondary SpectroSERVERs

We have noticed that after some of our Secondary SpectroSERVERs are restarted, there are instances where processd does not start up.  When we check further, we can see several processd core files located in the /var/crash directory.

When we run GDB on the processd core file we can see the following


gdb processd -c <core file name>

Release : 21.2.x / 22.2.x

Component : Spectrum Core / SpectroSERVER


Many old and unnecessary hostnames in the $SPECROOT/.hostrc file that would cause processd not to complete the host verification process upon processd startup.


Removed the unneeded hostfile names from the $SPECROOT/.hostrc file.

Now when we reboot the server we no longer see processd crashing.
