    After installing 10.3 you may see this message in the VNM.OUT:

     

    Nov 16 11:40:50 ERROR TRACE at VNM.cc(493): SpectroSERVER unable to set core unlimited. The system level error was: Operation not permitted

     

    We changed the code to change the ulimit corefilesize to unlimited so that the linux OS could create a core file if the SpectroSERVER were to crash.

     

    This will be fixed in the next release of Spectrum.


    The temporary workaround is to manually set the ulimit corefilesize to unlimited:

    As root user run:

     

    ulimit -a

     

    This will show you the ulimit values.

     

    ulimit -c unlimited


    This will set the corefilesize to unlimited.

     

    Cheers!
