Does anyone ever meet such issue ? 
/opt/VRTSvcs/bin/checkboot get a core when execute "had -version"
I've never heard of this process checkboot, and don't know what's it about. 
The product and OS version are:
SFHA 5.1
SLES 10.2
Below is gdb output on the core file with binary file /opt/VRTSvcs/bin/checkboot :
Core was generated by `/opt/VRTSvcs/bin/checkboot /var/VRTSvcs/lock/.habootfile'.
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.

If you run" /opt/VRTSvcs/bin/checkboot /var/VRTSvcs/lock/.habootfile" does it core dump when the system is up

Are you just on 5.1 GA? have you tested and eliminated the latest service pack for this release? or at the very least pull the latest checkboot from the rpm to /tmp and re-run the command

Hi All, 

Thanks for the hint thoughts. This problem has been clairified. The reason "checkboot" core was /user/run/utmp file are missing.

Thanks for your reply.
