From Server CLI:
Login to CUCM(TFTP) server and run the command utils core active list. the output will show multiple CTFTP cores.
Run the command "utils core active analyze <core name>"
The output(backtrace) of the core should match with below.

Note: After DST update, TFTP service will restarted and no core is observed which is by design.
The core is happening when it tries to write something in the trace file. This may also result in the ability of the TFTP service to start.
Below are the steps.
Step 1. Set os to permissive mode by running "utils os secure permissive" with either Trace settings on or off.
Step 2. Restart/Start TFTP service from Serviceability.
Step 3. Move back the cluster to Enforcing using "utils os secure enforce".
