Long boot process due to errors in /etc/rc3.d/S09fw1boot Technical Level
Symptoms
  • Longer boot process following an upgrade, for example from 3 minutes on R80.10 to 10 minutes on R80.20.
  • Similar errors appear during boot:
    /etc/rc3.d/S09fw1boot: line 720: [: simlinux_excluded_ifs_list: unary operator expected
    /etc/rc3.d/S09fw1boot: line 720: [: simi_reorder_max_packets: unary operator expected
Cause

Unsupported configuration of $FWDIR/boot/modules/fwkern.conf file, i.e. spaces around the "=" sign.

The file $FWDIR/boot/modules/fwkern.conf is used to configure a permanent change in kernel parameters and assign values during boot process.

Pay attention (as per sk26202), the $FWDIR/boot/modules/fwkern.conf should:

  • Not contain spaces around the "=" sign
  • Each parameter should be on a different line
  • There should be no empty lines
  • There should be no commented out lines with "#"
  • There should be no duplicated lines
