After applying SLES 11SP4 Kernel Update 3.0.101-104.2, the ZCM Primary servers are no longer functional due to Java services crashing.

SLES 12 SP2 4.4.59-92.20.2  will also cause the same issue.


The SuSE team has put out patch for kernel 3.0.101-107 which does not have the problem.


Java processes crash following the new kernel update to address the "Stack Clash" vulnerability.
