Starting SDL fails with "Segmentation fault" and/or generates core files.


This issue can occur after updating RHEL libraries to a newer version with "up2date".

The sollution for this issue is replacing LD_LIBRARY_PATH in $SD_BASE/bin/hostdird script.

1. Backup $SD_BASE/bin/hostdird

2. Open $SD_BASE/bin/hostdird with editor, comment line starting with "LD_LIBRARY_PATH=....."

3. Insert a new line "LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${LD_LIBRARY_PATH:-/lib:/usr/lib:/usr/local/lib}:/opt/hostdir/lib"

4. Save the file and start Server director using "sphadmin" utility.
