After updating our CentOS servers the SnapCenter Plug-in Loader service (spl daemon) could no longer be contacted on port 8145. After running some tests it seems that the daemon is not compatible with Java svm 1.8.0_242, the deamon does not start a listening port on tcp/8145 so there is no communication possible with the SnapCenter server and backups stop working. No errors are being logged locally, the only thing noticable in spl_init.log is that Jetty cannot be initialized properly - Logging initialized @-1ms to org.eclipse.jetty.util.log.Slf4jLog. After downgrading to jvm 1.8.0_232 everything starts working again, until the next update cycle ofcourse. These problems are reproducible with plugin versions 4.2 and 4.3.
Anyone else experiencing this and/or has a workaround for this issue?
