We are running NetOps 20.2.x in a distributed RHEL 7 environment. Recently, our RHEL servers were patched and rebooted so that the version went from 7.8 to 7.9 (as per /etc/redhat-release, which says "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.9 (Maipo)"). Ever since then, whenever the Spectrum servers are rebooted, <$SPECTRUM_HOME>/lib/SDPM/processd --start no longer runs. We have to login to the server and manually start that process using our sudo accounts.
Release : 20.2
Component : Spectrum Core / SpectroSERVER
