Hotfix to Support Random Number Generator
Hotfix
Applicable On
Virtual Appliance 14.1
MD5 Checksum

Enhancement / Resolved Issue
Apply this hotfix to disable the
Random Number Generator (RNGD)
service on the Virtual Appliance.
The
RNGD
service used for setting up the entropy is disabled on the Virtual Appliance. It has been observed that the RNGD service consumes excessive CPU thus impacting the other services on the Virtual Appliance. The RNGD service is now disabled and services like JCS are modified to run without the help of RNGD, using /dev/urandom.
