Issues with DVA on GW 18.1

Posted this in the WebAccess forum, but hasn't gotten any attention. Anyone else having DVA issues after upgrading to 18.1?

Recently upgraded GW to 18.1. When I use WebAccess and attempt to view a Word document, I receive the following error:


Unable to view 'filename.docx'

[38445] A failure occurred in the document conversion process. The document cannot be viewed at this time.


Thoughts?

Re: Issues with DVA on GW 18.1

Likely related to the new conversion libraries. Do you see (in /var/log/messages) segfaults in kvfilter.so followed by GPFs in kvutil.so? At that point simply restarting gwdva (which would be running at that time) would bring you back to business. For a while. From my experience the issue is not tied to a specific document or document type. I've seen this happening on a simple GWIA accounting text file which could be handled fine just a minute later (after bouncing gwdva).

I do see the segfaults. So this is a bug?

Re: Issues with DVA on GW 18.1

Might also be black magic. But i'd opt for a bug in the new conversion engine (first released build without Stellent / Oracle). You should have a core residing in /, you might want to prepare it and open a call referencing SR#101199422971. The more we are, the higher priority will be.
