Description Sönke Schwardt-Krummrich univentionstaff 2014-08-15 10:20:55 CEST
A customer in a larger environment (>50.000 users) noticed that during the update some new listener modules have been installed via several packages. Each package restarted the listener process that began to initialize the new listener module.
But before the initialization has been finished, the next package installed a new listener module and forced a restart of the listener by killing it (signal 9) after a certain timeout.
This way, the new modules had to be initialized several times which
a) increased the processing time
b) the init process gets killed hard which may cause problems because auf 
   "half handled objects" or corrupt data.

We should use a dpkg trigger for listener modules.

The School Customer affected flag is set but neither a Ticket number is referenced nor a Customer ID is set. Please set a Ticket number or a Customer ID. Otherwise the School Customer affected flag will be reset.

This issue has been filed against UCS 3. UCS 3 is out of the normal maintenance and many UCS components have vastly changed in UCS 4.

If this issue is still valid, please change the version to a newer UCS version otherwise this issue will be automatically closed in the next weeks.

There is a Customer ID set so I set the flag "Enterprise Customer affected".

As discussed, I'll reduce the priority since it is more a pain and bot a reason not to purchase the product.
