Symantec Data Center Security (DCS) AIX agent does not currently support use of WPAR partitions with IPS enabled.
Last Updated October 30, 2017
The Symantec DCS AIX agent does not currently support WPAR partitions. When IPS module is enabled on AIX Operating system with WPAR partitions in use, a reboot loop and/or crash will occur. This occurs when attempting to access a regular JFS2 file being accessed by a representation of the file from a NameFS filesystem used by WPAR. As NameFS is a purely logical filesystem, it appears the kernel readlink operation causes the crash, as the namefs vnode passed is not represented as a 'symlink' per-se.
Currently there is not a timeline of when this will be supported by the Symantec Data Center Security Agent.
You could see the following info in the crash stack, which would indicate the use of WPAR being the root cause of the crash.
